Castlefield Market
Castlefield Market makes a welcome return to the region with this, the first in a series of monthly markets. Comfy in its new home at Royal Mills, the market features all the artisan treats you could hope for: Street food, locally-brewed beers, vintage clothing, crafts et al. They’ve also got an in-house DJ spinning for the afternoon session, if you just fancy a little sit down and a listen.
Sat 2 Apr, Royal Mills, Redhill Street, Castlefield, Manchester M4 6JG, 10am – 4pm,

Girls on Film at Deaf Institute (pictured)
The Deaf Institute’s flagship nostalgia night, Girls on Film not only promises two floors of wall-to-wall solid gold 80s hits from resident and guest DJs, but also the tantalising prospect of a glitter cannon. So get down there and see why it’s still one of the city’s biggest nights out. But remember, you have to arrive before 11pm to get free entry – and to take advantage of their complementary Babycham offer – otherwise it’s £5 on the door.
Sat 2 Apr, The Deaf Institute, 135 Grosvenor Street, Manchester M1 7HE, 10pm – 3am,

Marcel Khalife at RNCM
The Royal Northern College of Music plays host to Lebanese composer and musician Marcel Khalife, who’ll be talking about his new album Andalusia of Love. The album is inspired by the work of the late Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, who was a regular collaborator with Khalife for over four decades, and focuses on themes of love and suffering against the backdrop of a region in constant conflict. Registration is essential if you want to attend this fascinating talk.
