It took a lot of work for the weekend as we know it to become embedded in society; workers in Greater Manchester fought hard for the right to establish two out of seven days in a week as time outside of work for family, rest and recuperation that we have all come to enjoy.
Design Art Studio Mikesian will be setting up shop where you can make a placard stating what the weekend means to you now, or what you wish it to be in the future. A pledge, protest or plea. Placards will be displayed in the shop over the festival weekend.
We Invented The Weekend Festival invites you to collect your placard on Sunday afternoon and take part in an exciting one-off mass participation Free Time Parade through the festival and over to Trafford and back, kicking off at the Open Centre.
