2024 Summer Clachan, Manchester

September 12 @ 6:30 pm

You’ve probably heard that it always rains in Manchester so where better to make a splash in our industry and meet like-minded professionals than in the city’s Rain Bar?

This former umbrella factory, just a short walk from Oxford Road, Deansgate and Piccadilly stations, has been turned into one of Manchester’s favourite pubs and is an ideal venue for a gathering of industry colleagues.

Old Friends and guests will enjoy a private room and fully stocked bar complete with outdoor terrace overlooking the canal and the best beer garden in Manchester.  The ticket price of just £40 includes one entry for the raffle and, more importantly, a generous and sumptuous buffet of pub grub favourites – you will not go hungry.


Date: Thursday 12th September from 6.30pm until late

Venue: Rain Bar, 80 Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester M1 5JG

Dress code: Casual

Accommodation: Premier Inn Manchester City Centre (Portland Street) – rooms are currently only £59 per night


So, don’t delay and book today for what is sure to be yet another sellout event!

See you there, come rain or shine!
