Take a step into the NIGHTGARDEN, a fantastical environment of electro-landscapes and digital botanicals.
Designed to disorientate and delight, NIGHTGARDEN combines food, drink, art and performance, where nature meets technology head on.
Running every Friday night NIGHTGARDEN sees the venue’s Furnace room transformed into a ‘glitch forest’, with large-scale video projections sitting alongside towering trees and verdant plants, creating a playground for drinking and dancing.
Thunderclouds float between The Furnace’s Edwardian girders, whilst ladders of vines and briars divide the space into pockets of discovery for guests to explore, in a relaxed event that’s accessible to both ‘one-after-workers’ and ‘out-for-the-nighters.’
Collaborations with some of the North’s hottest culinary talents are set to take eating to the next level, with headliners already confirmed including Mary-Ellen McTague Steven Burgess, Robert Owen Brown, plus Manchester’s Real Junk Food Project.
Subversive menus inspired by the changing seasons will shift perceptions of street dining, with feather and fur featuring alongside plant-based dishes for autumn, as well as foraged ingredients and reclaimed food waste from supermarkets.
Olivers Wines, the new Nightgarden wines selectors, will be pairing wines to the menu.
The project also brings together many of the region’s top creative talents, with numerous planned collaborations. The event’s spacial concept design and event curation is by Soo Wilkinson, Creative Director of Igloo Design, who’s previous projects include Liverpool’s Alma de Cuba and Babycream, and The Lawn Club and The Kitchens in Manchester.
