Festival celebrations are often great ways to have shared experiences with your friends and family while enjoying specialist events and live entertainment.
We have selected a few of the best and diverse cultural festivals, coming this summer, including entertainment, parades, performances and film festivals.
In July the Manchester Fringe Festival presents a month’s worth of new theatre, comedy and much more, listen to and engage with writers and storytellers at the Literature Festival, in October, or simply marvel at the beauty of the ‘Steam Age’ at the East Lancs Railway, open all summer.
So grab your shoes, get those tickets and get going.
