[@]Manchester Festivals

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.

Manchester a City of ‘Quarters’

Bury - Part of Historic Manchester


Only 30 minutes by Tram from the City Centre, Bury and its attractions make a good day trip



Nestled between the Irwell and Medloack rivers Castlefield is where the Romans established 'Mamucium'. Experience the old and modern and explore its attractions

China Town - City Centre

China Town

China Town, a stone's throw from Piccadilly Gardens, offers restaurants, specialist supermarkets and entertainment all in one space



Connecting most parts of the city, this mile-long road is worth a stroll along and offers some great shops and places to eat
