The Manchester Weekender. Forty-eight hours of art, culture, music, film, food, literature, walks, politics, poetry, photography, theatre, spectacle and games all wrapped up into a single weekend.

The Manchester Weekender showcases the best of Manchester’s art and culture, its museums, galleries, festivals and events. It shines a light on the hidden nooks and crannies, the real history and fabricated tales of Manchester. It stages a series of one-off, intimate events that sum up the city. It pairs international artists, musicians, writers and more with some of the city’s most beautiful settings. And it does this for one weekend only – forty-eight hours of some of the most unusual cultural experiences you’ll find anywhere in the UK.

Enjoy a long weekend in Manchester.
