Fans of Oasis should head to the Old Granada Studios ASAP for the exhibition Chasing the Sun. After premiering in London in 2014, it’s has finally made its way to the band’s home city. The exhibition covers Oasis’s early years, 1993-97, when they went from unsigned local lads through to recording classic albums and headlining music festivals. Presented are a whole load of photographs and posters from that era – some of them iconic, some less well-known. Key pieces of memorabilia included are Noel’s hand-scribbled lyrics for some of the band’s biggest hits, and his Union Jack Epiphone guitar. Another major highlight is the full-size replica of Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs’ living room where the cover photo for ‘Definitely Maybe’ was taken. Fans can recreate the cover and peruse a display containing many of the original props.

Until Tue 25 Oct, Old Granada Studios, Quay House, Quay Street, Manchester, M3 3JE, noon – 7pm daily (6pm Sun), FREE,
