Nine to see at Manchester’s Dot to Dot Festival

One of the granddaddies of the town festival format is the magnificent Dot to Dot with a long weekend of fun in Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham. I always regret that I’ve not organised my days to follow the D2D carnival right around the country but once again I’m going to have to content myself with just the Manchester leg of the series.

Kashmere Live at The Parish

Pub and bar week nights out in August student-free-zone Huddersfield are rarely notable for their banging qualities.
