Manchester venue to host General Election ‘all nighter’ with results streamed live onto a big screen

There'll also be a stocked snack bar and "monumental amounts of coffee" to keep you going.

A General Election ‘all nighter’ where the results will be streamed live onto a big cinema screen is happening in Manchester next week.

Are we about to see the end of 14 years of Tory rule? Could it be a night to celebrate for Labour? May the Lib Dems, the Greens, and ever-growing raft of independent parties across the UK gain themselves some new constituencies? And, most importantly, will Count Binface finally grab that seat in the Houses of Parliament?

All these questions will (hopefully) be answered on General Election day next Thursday 4 July.

And if you fancy following along with all the action live from the second the polls close right through to the final results being revealed, then there’s a popular city centre venue hosing an ‘all nighter’ watch party event especially for it.

Happening at Cultplex – which is one of Manchester‘s favourite indie cinema venues, tucked away inside GRUB in the Green Quarter – politics fans will want to make sure they get themselves down there from 9:30pm sharp so they can grab a seat ahead of the exit polls and make their way through the many, many hours of crushing and dramatic announcements.


A full bar, a stocked-up supply of snacks, and “monumental amounts of coffee” will be on offer as the results are beamed live in 4k onto the venue’s full-sized cinema screen.

In a bid to try and keep everyone awake during the dull moments, the event will have its very-own host throughout the night, and, apparently, there’s also plenty of audience interaction planned too – including polls to enter, and optional tasks to complete, like putting in letters of ‘no confidence’ in the presenting skills of the BBC’s leading political figure, Laura Kuenssberg.


There’ll also be a second screen showing all the memes and ‘hot takes’ from social media too, so you won’t miss a thing.

And if you’re one of the brave souls who’s signed up to count the votes at the nearby AO Arena, then you can grab your first pint for free, if want to swing by the venue after your watch has ended.
