ANTICIPATING its possible selection as an Olympic city, Manchester is to host an intriguing conference on the 'evening economy of cities' in September. The conference will highlight the economic impact of elements such as restaurants, clubs, cinemas, theatres and music venues operating after 6pm.

The Manchester Institute for Popular Culture, which is co- organising the event, says: 'The use of the city centre after normal working hours is crucial not only to the image of a city on the international stage but also for its own citizens.'
