Listen up Mancs! Manchester Day is returning this weekend, celebrating ten years of the event in collaboration with Manchester Council.
So here’s everything you need to know…
Manchester’s free family-friendly day out will be coming to city centre streets on Sunday 23 June from 12 until 6pm.
Celebrating 10 years of Manchester Day, the theme is ’10 out of 10?.
Of the theme, a spokesperson for Manchester Day said: “We’re giving the best city in the world ten out of ten for its successes in industry, science, music, fashion, education and sporting achievements.”
OK. We’re 100% on board. (Manchester is the best city after all.)
City Centre squares – Albert Square, St Ann’s Square and Cathedral Gardens – will host an array of performances and entertainment throughout the day, as well as food and drink stalls and decorations to fit the theme.
According to organisers, the parade has a new route this year. It will begin on Princess Street (near Canal Street), onto Portland Street and Peter Street, before travelling down Deansgate to finish near the Manchester Cathedral.
Manchester Day organisers released approximate timings for each parade location:
1.00pm – Start at Princess St
1.15pm – Peter Street
1.30pm – Deansgate
2.30pm – Finish at Manchester Cathedral
