After last year’s festival welcomed over 7,400 people, Design Manchester in collaboration with G .

During the day, live artworks will be created around the hall’s unique space and there are many opportunities to get involved, with workshops, activities and displays from University of Salford’s BA (Hons) Fashion Design, G . F Smith, SWALK Creative, Fred Aldous, Animation Nation, Lazerian, Lost Heritage, Red Button and many more.

A family-friendly event that is open to all, there will be plenty to keep everyone entertained, with live music in the main event space alongside pop-up food stall favourites and local beers, including a very special festival beer from Alphabet brewery.
