Whether you fancy arts or music or you’re just going for the food, you’re bound to find something that’s right up your alley. The highlight of this weekend’s events is, of course, Chinese New Year but if you’d rather avoid the crowds, there’s plenty more to do. Here’s our picks.

Dutch techno DJ and producer Joris Voorn has joined forces with The Warehouse Project to bring his celebrated Spectrum show to Manchester’s Albert Hall this weekend. To pour some sugar on this already sweet deal, Voorn will be joined by house and techno legend Maya Jane Coles, along with Manchester resident Krysko and acclaimed drum and bass producer turned techno DJ, Trevino. If you’re a fan of techno, Voorn’s extended set in the Grade II listed former Wesleyan chapel should be something to behold. He’ll be playing everything from trance, to broken beat, to acid and beyond, so you have every reason to get excited.
