Manchester, Leeds & Midlands

Hi All,

I am working on updating the listings for Gingerbeer and in particular looking for venues/bars/groups outside of London.

If you know of any bars/nights/groups that are current I would be very grateful if you could post here so I can add them to our listings!

Ta evaso!

You know, Leeds is in Yorkshire ;D
You have "Manchester, Leeds" in this thread, and "York, Yorkshire" in the other... but I understand why, because Leeds doesn't want to be mixed with York, as it's so much better ;)

I like Leeds and York. But the only regular night of any size and note is the Todmorden disco I think. Some of Tod is in Yorkshire....

Are you working on the listings for the main GB site or the messageboards, Mental Elf.

For the messageboards, I know we had a discussion a while ago to get around this problem about location for Northern stuff.

If you're working on something for the boards, I could track that down if useful.

Ooops! I must confess, my geography is appalling... :-\

It's for the main site MzB, updating the directory so it doesn't necessarily need to be social stuff, business would be good too.

I'm asking you guys because during my searches I am having trouble identify if bars/groups etc still exist!

OK. Well there's the perennial Todmorden Women's Disco, second Saturday of the month. No website but the Facebook group is at: https://www.facebook.com/TodmordenLadiesDisco

Also Rapture Club Night in Manchester, first Saturday of the month: http://www.raptureclubnight.co.uk/

Laughing Cows, women's comedy with a strong Northern focus: http://www.laughingcowscomedy.co.uk

Faux Q, a new club night launching this Saturday, 14 Nov.  " punk attitude + alt femme ... with a sense of humor". No website or Facebook Group, but the Facebook event page is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/283740515167639

That's key stuff around Manchester. Not sure about other places.
