Summer has officially arrived!
Although it may not always look that way in the sky, it doesn’t stop us Mancs making the most of every moment.
Beach holiday experts, On the Beach, have brought the beach to Manchester city centre and we couldn’t be happier.
On the Beach’s Great Northern Summer offers a range of events taking place Great Northern Square, including the return of the giant sandpit in the amphitheatre.
Think Spain when you’re relaxing on the beach, soaking up some rays and listening to kids play in the sand. OK, maybe not Spain, but if you’re not going away this year, it’s the closest thing we’ve got.
There are picnic tables dotted around the amphitheatre so families can sit and enjoy their food overlooking the sandpit, and a giant deckchair for photo opportunities.
Alan Harding, Marketing Director at On the Beach, said: “As the beach holiday specialists, it was fantastic to bring a little bit of the beach to Manchester last year.
“Now that we’re based in the city centre, we are even more delighted to be working with the Great Northern once again to create a fabulous outdoor space where families can get together and children can let their imaginations run wild in the heart of the city.”
