The Gloucestershire city of Gloucester as a number of medieval and Tudor period gabled and half timbered houses which date back to Gloucester's early history. An example of a public house from this period, and the only remaining example in the city, is The New Inn in Northgate Street. The building was constructed in 1450 by John Twyning.
The city also hosts the annual Three Choirs Festival every third year. The festival dates back to the eighteenth century and is one of the oldest music festivals in the United Kingdom. Gloucester hosts the festival with the cities of Hereford and Worcester and is next to host the festival in 2016. Other festivals held in the city include the annual Gloucester International Rhythm and Blues Festival which takes place at the end of July. There is also the Gloucester International Cajun and Zydeco Festival and the Medieval Fayre which is held every summer.
The Guildhall is the city's main theatre and hosts a large number of events including live music, dance performances, a cinema, bar, and art gallery. The main museum in the City is the Gloucester City Museum & Art Gallery.
Located in north west England, the city of Manchester lies at the heart of Greater Manchester. Unofficially referred to sometimes as "The Capital of the North", the city is known for its influence on industry and music along with its globally recognised sporting connections. It is home to the UK's second largest airport outside London and is also the England's second most visited city by overseas visitors after London.
Manchester is a very mixed city. Many races and religions have communities in the city and it has a long history of being more tolerant than most cities to people of any background. Manchester's Chinatown around George Street and Faulkner Street has been a feature of Manchester since the late 1970s. Many karaoke bars and restaurants have opened in this district providing late night entertainment for all. You will find people on the streets of Chinatown speaking Chinese to each other and most of the signs are bilingual. It is home to many of Manchester's east-asian restaurants as well as many traders in Chinese food and goods.
The Village, also known as the Gay Village, has built up around Canal Street out of the many cotton warehouses in the area. Many of the city's most famous bars and clubs are to be found here, most of which are as popular with heterosexual party-animals as they are with the gay crowd, mainly due to their very late opening hours (5am or later) and friendly carefree atmosphere.
