Popular DJs at GRUB (pictured)
Club night Popular has made a name for itself over the past few years, trading in pure, unadulterated cheese and promising a shame-free celebration of all things chart-topping. This month they start a monthly early-evening residency at Fairfield Social Club as part of the GRUB food fair. Every first Friday of the month you’ll be able to swing by, get loaded up on the finest street food Manchester has to offer, and then dance off all those excess calories to a playlist that covers everything from Prince to Paramore.
Fri 1 Feb, Fairfied Social Club, Archway 6, Temperance Street, Manchester, M12 6HR, 6pm – 8pm, www.facebook.com
