The Poet's Corner event was part of the 'Manchester After Hours' one-night, city-wide social.

In May 2016, MA Art Gallery and Museum Studies and MA Arts Management, Policy and Practice students collaborated with Chetham's Library to organise an evening of spoken word, live music and performance and a specially curated exhibition which celebrated 19th century Manchester’s dialects, poetry and people.

The exhibition and event were produced in the context of the Professional Practice Project module and was part of the Manchester After Hours initiative.

It attracted more than 200 people, who attended the performances and visited the exhibition.
