After last year’s festival welcomed over 7,400 people, Design Manchester in collaboration with G . F Smith and The Manchester Print Fair have relocated and expanded the Design City Weekender to the stunning surrounds of Upper Campfield, playing host hundreds of creatives over three days with affordable works for sale and a schedule of workshops including screen-printing, paper marbling, stop-frame animation, fashion design, collage and colouring, alongside exhibitions, showcases, 3 minute portraits and more.

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.
