Everyone loves the summer; we love Manchester, that’s why we think everyone should visit Manchester this summer… We believe that the next few weeks bring some fantastic events to Manchester and the surrounding areas, here are just a few we have picked out:
Spring Festival of Markets
When? Thursday 21st May till Sunday 7th June
Where? St. Ann’s Square, M2 7HQ
What time? 10.00-17.30
How much? Free
I suppose you’re wondering why this is featured if the festival is called “Spring Festival of Market” well despite this festival being in Spring, we think that you should definitely make an appearance here.
If you would consider yourself as a bit of a shopper, then these markets should be wonderful for you and your friends, this festival gives you the perfect opportunity to engage with the artisans and makers of the jewellery, clothing and even homewares!
Also this event would be the perfect destination to grab yourself some lunch, with a fine collection of artisan foods from local chefs and even 3 themed bars, we would definitely recommend visiting if you are looking to enjoy fantastic cuisine and drink in the fresh air.
Patio chairs, picket fencing and full of flowers, St Ann’s Square has to be your number one choice for meeting with your friends, shopping with the children and grabbing some food, don’t miss out!
When? Sunday 14th June
Where? City Centre
What time? 12.00-18.00
How much? Free
Yet again, this event isn’t officially in the summer, but…
Each year, Manchester Day is great… but Manchester Day 2015 has the potential to be bigger and better than ever!
An action packed parade for residents, tourists and even families; Manchester Day celebrates what is really great about the City. I can guarantee that every single one of Manchester’s city centre’s squares will be buzzing, so make sure you do not miss out on this event!

It’s fantastic that Manchester is the home of the world’s first festival of original, new work and special events, and I would definitely recommend this for all ages, because there really is something for everybody! This festival will surely live up to expectations and will be a fantastic 17 days!
