With three days left of Manchester’s Dig the City 2015, we thought we’d come up with a little encouragement for anyone who’s not yet been…
We spent yesterday afternoon wandering happily between show gardens, stalls selling plants and honey, and, yes, pop-up cocktail stands. There really is nothing like Dig the City; it brings stunning greenery to a city notoriously reluctant to encourage plant life, turning Manchester’s streets into vibrant, colourful corridors where you can play giant chess and hear some of Manchester Jazz Festival‘s excellent musicians play amongst the foliage (did we mention the cocktails, too?).
The city never gets more beautiful than this
So, if you’ve not yet had a chance to explore, use your lunch hour or go after work – as we hope the pictures below will prove, the city never gets more beautiful than this.
