One Manchester Supporting Music for Families

Family Jam is a monthly family music event, with a different artist performing a special early evening set especially for children and families as part of Friday Night is Family Night at Z-arts. From nursery rhymes to Queen and everything in between, we have an amazing host of artists reinterpreting their music and musical style for little one in a family-friendly environment. Parents and children can unwind after a hectic week with music and free arts activities for the whole family to get involved in. This all takes place in Z-café, where hot and cold drinks are available to buy, as well as tasty food including veggie hotdogs!

With a house band and featuring local young musicians, Family Jam is a chance for families to enjoy a relaxed evening of live music from professional artists in a family friendly environment.

Our line up for the first half of 2020 includes the amazing artists listed below:

Friday 31 January – Hobbit
