September in Manchester sees the closing of one of the area's best-loved summertime attractions. Spinningfields, a nightly movie screening on the lawn at Screenfields, will be closing for the winter after this month. Therefore, September visitors will be the last to enjoy this quaint and picturesque movie screening series.
Not to worry, though. Another outrageously popular event is starting up in September. A twelve-week event, the Warehouse Project, begins. It will end with a gigantic celebration on New Year's Day. The Warehouse Project has been described as a rave party considering its shady location in Store Street Car Park, underneath Picadilly Station.
The nightly parties held there offer a host of different DJs every night. Tickets sell out quickly as the Warehouse Project is Manchester's premiere clubbing destination.
Indeed, the venue gives the entire project an underground, forbidden vibe, but those who have attended say that that is part of the event's charm and popularity. However, the three modern bars that are set up around the dance floor remind dancers that it is, indeed, a city-sanctioned event.
Tourists who do not want to explore Manchester's nightlife in this way can attend a variety of performances at musical venues such as the Manchester Arena, the Manchester Apollo, or the Manchester Academy. In addition, the theatres and the museums in the area provide days' worth of viewing entertainment.
With an average low temperature of 52°F (11°C) and an average high temperature of 61°F (16°C), Manchester's overall average temperature during September is 56.3°F (13.5°C).
There is an average of 4.2" (108 mm) of precipitation. There is an average of 11.3 days of precipitation.
There is an average of 127.2 hours of sunlight for the month, which is down noticeably from the higher numbers of the summertime.
