Cheers, although should have specified it was mainly somewhere to watch some music, preferably something like jazz, afro or latin. Haven't heard it mentioned in ages or paid attention when around there but is Indigo in Withington still going?

Edit: Perfect, just saw this for next week https://www.facebook.com/events/1377059325921398/

Most kids proper love curry in this day and age, mine do and all my families little ones do as well. Curry house is a proper win to keep them happy from about five upwards. Its like the modern day wimpy.

She just has garlic naan, chips and some of my chicken tikka. And a shitload of popadoms.
She only wants to go to Akbars because its where i always go when im out with my mates and shes normally standing at the door saying i cant go unless i take her, nothing to do with the food.
She tried a korma at the weekend from the takeout tho, ill get her on the madras when shes about 10.
Thanks deec and jd, im gonna ring up Gorilla and see if they allow kids, the pork ciabatta sounds good, and its close by.

The Abel Heywood is mint, Manchester's newest greatest pub. It's like if Carlsberg ran your local and hired the staff.
