Walking Dead Screening and Quiz at Fab Café
AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead returns from its mid-season break this week, and if you haven’t found a way to stream the latest episode, you can catch it for free at Fab Café this Monday. As well as screening the latest episode, true Deadheads can take part in a Walking Dead themed quiz afterwards, where your knowledge of the show – and the comics that inspired it – will be pushed to the limit. There’s a small charge of £1 per person for the quiz, but with cash and TWD merchandise on offer to the winners, it’s well worth the investment.
Mon 13 Feb, Fab Café, 109 Portland Street, Manchester, M1 6DN. 7pm – 11pm, www.facebook.com

Jazz at Jimmy’s
New Northern Quarter bar Jimmy’s – a small venue specialising in live music and spoken word – opened its doors last week, and if you haven’t been down already, this event is a great opportunity to check it out. It’s the first of what will hopefully be many jazz nights at the bar, featuring their resident house band the Jimmy’s Devil House Band, who’ll be playing a set full of your favourite blues, funk and swing.

Suki Chan at CFCCA (pictured)
Suki Chan is a video artist and Hong Kong native whose films and installations have been hosted all over the world. She’s at Thomas Street’s Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art this Thursday, where she’ll be discussing her latest work Lucida, which opened at the centre last month. Lucida is a unique installation that utilises eye tracking technology, allowing visitors interact with the exhibition just by looking at it. Following the discussion, there will also be a Chinese tea-tasting session courtesy of Cathedral Square’s Proper Tea. There is a small £3 donation required for the talk and tasting, but the installation itself is free to visit until Sunday.
Thu 16 Feb, Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA), 13 Thomas Street, Manchester, M4 1EU. 6pm – 8pm, £3, www.eventbrite.co.uk
