We’ve finally reached June and I’m sure many of us are eager to save our cash for those imminent summer plans.

With that being said, we’ve rounded up the best free things to do in Manchester this week, with plans including a cracking open mic at Feel Good Club, a Blues Jam at Matt and Phred’s and a whole lot more…
