Manchester never fails to impress us with its delightful designer ways, vast vintage and its iconic individuality.

And it certainly lived up to its talented reputation when subculture brand “Munkispanner” hosted an Xpose Yourself event at Manchester’s underground music venue – The Ruby Lounge.
The underground bar was transformed into a museum of creative talent for burlesque performers, live artists, fire performers, live music and latex donned hostesses.

If you have a love for all things kitsch and retro, and you haven’t yet discovered the lovely likes of Vintage Life Magazine then you need to get your glamour-puss paws on a copy and fast!

This wonderful monthly magazine features articles on “vintage style, fashion, hair, beauty, house and home, music and film”. From the classic 1920’s straight through to the 1970’s all in one magazine!

Just one tweet and....

Retro Candy, Cake, Arts & Crafts, Alcohol, Vintage Clothes and dozens of stalls opened by the Local Cafes, Boutiques and Restaurants….Oh and absolutely no talk of  “The Wedding” what so ever. 

Manchester’s 1940s Northern Quarter Street Party had a pretty good turn out and a delightfully dressed up one at that! There were a mix of those dipping their toes into 1940’s dress and those who plunged straight in! Bunting was strung across the street, market stalls lined the pavements and in the centre laid an endlessly large row of tables placed in the middle of the action.

Entertainment was far from little with the
Busker’s Bandstand featuring a mix of folk bands and magicians and Local artists showcased their work in a series of live art performances. Later on in the day Manchester’s finest independent boutiques were able to strut their clothes down a catwalk which you were available for sale afterwards and  the ‘Red Arrows’ took to the streets with a bang!

But the entertainment didn’t stop there, with charity tombola, pass the parcel and the biggest treasure hunt round Manchester’s Northern Quarter, what better way to get to know the locals and lovers of the city than celebrating the independent parts of Manchester NQ with the whole lot?

It definitely made an impression on those who visit and those who live here. Lets hope for another one next year?
