There is no one history of Hip hop. Hip hop is a culture of music, art and dance. Hip hop is an important influence on many of us that live in Manchester today. It is part of the language with which we speak.  We celebrate the many histories that we live through music with a live band playing songs that influenced Hip hop, Hip hop grooves that were influential on us and contemporary music that is influenced by Hip hop. Artists from across the UK will share their music, culture and love of Hip hop with you.

This event will begin at 19:30 but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open from 5:30pm for delicious food and drinks.
