You’ll get to sample this all for free when the venue throws its doors on 16 September – plus, anyone attending the Autumn Open Day will also be able to take advantage of a 10% discount on all language courses too.

Expect Spanish food and wine, live demonstrations of flamenco, tango and salsa dancing, activities that the whole family can enjoy, with prizes that include a free language course, dance course and DELE official examiner course. All of the events are presented in English too, meaning that you don’t need to be a Spanish speaker to enjoy them.

The Autumn Open Day also offers a taster of upcoming events at Instituto Cervantes. The centre’s year-round cultural programme includes visits from major film directors and writers, screenings and readings, and Spanish language classes (in-person and online) for all ages and abilities.

Get yourselves down to Deansgate for a taste of Spain without even stepping foot out of Manchester.
