Slung Low’s How To Festival returns on Sunday 7th October 2018 at the HUB with a distinctly 80s / 90s party vibe. How to…Party will be a day of performance and activities to celebrate the way people get together to have a good time – eat, drink, rave, tell stories, share a magic moment or two…
As always at Slung Low’s HUB you pay what you decide. All are welcome and no previous experience is needed to take part in the workshops.
There is very limited capacity for some of the Festival events so make sure you book your places on the individual workshops in advance using the links below.
Here’s what’s on offer…

1989. Manchester. The year that everything changed from black and white into crazy technicolour. A frenzy of drugs, beats and bucket hats. Illegal raves. Acid parties. Just jumping up and down in a field and throwing two fingers to Thatcher… Remember it?
“Part dance party, part political theatre, all loving tribute to acid house… It’s an extraordinary night out”
