Join us at one of Manchester's most iconic pubs for the official launch of Manchester Beer Week.

We'll kick off the festival with a bar packed full of beer from the city's best breweries and party in true Mancunian style.

This will also be your first chance to taste the festival's official beer, MCR Fold, which is a groundbreaking collaboration between JW Lees and Cloudwater. It has already set tongues wagging and will be available to the general public for the first time at The Marble Arch.

There will be music from The Hatstand Medicine Band at 6pm. Then, at 7pm, event organiser Connor Murphy will say a few words about the festival and let you know what to expect throughout the week. After this, small plates and nibbles will be provided for your delectation.

Capacity will be limited on the evening so get there early to avoid disappointment. However, should you not get in, there will be another launch night party taking place across the city at Cafe Beermoth so nobody will miss out!
