Art Battle Manchester - Battle Royal II
Manchester's most energetic art event. 10 talented artists go head-to-head in a live paint off where YOU decide the winner. Expect the unexpected...
Battle Royal II will see the 10 winners of previous Art Battle MCR events return to the ring for one last skirmish and compete for the ‘Champion of Champions crown.
Manchester’s best kept secret, the phenomenal Art Battle, will be staging its biggest show to date at none other than the iconic New Century, the cultural jewel in the crown of the city’s NOMA district.
It is only fitting that this ultimate contest will to be held in the recently restored Grade II listed building, which in the 1960’s played host to the likes of Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones, with its original sprung dance floor, disco ceiling and state of the art sound system.
New Century's capacity crowd will watch a spectacle of painters, illustrators, tattooists and street artists go head-to-head in what has been described at the city’s most energetic art event. With only 30 minutes to create a masterpiece, the audience decides the winner of each round and -ultimately – the artist who will be crowned Champion of Champions.
Since it started in 2013, Art Battle Manchester has delivered 21 sold-out events, never using the same venue twice. They clearly have a penchant for bringing the off-beat lively event to stunning buildings, as recent venues include London Road Fire Station, Albert Hall, The Royal Exchange, Victoria Baths and an array of historic mills and warehouses.
In addition to art, DJs, music, food and drink, expect some unexpected shenanigans...
