Manchester International Festival is working with The Warehouse Project to stage four specially curated shows taking place across five nights in November.

All performances take place at Manchester’s immense Mayfield, a former railway station, where they last came together for the 10 x 10 weekend back in 2015.

Curated with BBC 6 Music’s Mary Anne Hobbs, Special Edition brings a musical offering with shows from across the musical spectrum, with visuals from lighting designer Stuart Bailes.

These shows are part of a series of pre-Factory events, paving the way for the opening of The Factory, a new major arts space being developed in the heart of the city that will be operated by MIF which returns next year.

Special Edition will run alongside The Warehouse Project's full 2018 season, still to be announced.
