Pen & Pencil unveil new karaoke concept

The traditional format of karaoke is set for a huge shake-up, with Northern Quarter bar Pen & Pencil taking things to a whole new level.

The new monthly karaoke night comes complete with a live backing band and singers who will perform with you.

The night will start with live music from Manchester band The Seadogs and then it’s your time to get up and impress as the lead singer of your own band.

We Are Rockeoke will take over the Hilton Street venue on the third Thursday of every month, starting on October 19. There will be prizes at the end of the night for the best performance.

Tickets for the evening cost £5.
