Melanin Markets is back and bringing vibrant music, food, drink, art, homeware, clothing and much more, to the Royal Exchange Theatre, in the heart of Manchester City Centre.

Melanin Markets Manchester debuted at Contact Theatre in 2021. After a successful launch, founders Bianca Danielle and Kelly Morgan, are bringing it back, bigger and better than ever.

“We are really excited to have Melanin Markets takeover such a huge, history filled and resilient space as The Great Hall. We created this event to provide a place for EVERYONE to actively support and engage with Black owned businesses and to be able to do this slap bang in the City Centre is monumental” – Bianca Danielle, Melanin Markets co-founder
