The Cultural Calendar 2011

Creative Tourist

We like to make life easy for art lovers here at Creative Tourist. And what better way to plan a cultural year than this: Creative Tourist’s very own Manchester Cultural Calendar 2011.

Our beautifully designed calendar (designed with a little help from Modern Designers) outlines some of the major cultural events taking place in Manchester during 2011. Our focus as usual is on the art exhibitions, museums, festivals and cultural events of the coming year – though for more information on things to do in Manchester in 2011 (and to keep your calendar fresh),  join our mailing list or just keep coming back to the site regularly.

So what are you waiting for? Download the Creative Tourist Cultural Calendar 2011 now. Click here for the flat A2 version, or here for the split-page A3 one.
