Manchester International FestivalCreative Tourist
Manchester is all set to become the world’s stage this summer, with Manchester International Festival returning from 29 June to 16 July 2023. And with the long-anticipated programme nearly here, it’s fair to say that we’re more than a little excited about the cultural adventures in store.
Taking place in venues and spaces across the city, including the all-new Factory International, MIF23 will present 18 extraordinary days of events, performances and happenings in Greater Manchester, where the world’s most exciting creative minds will reach across art forms, smash boundaries, and speak to urgent contemporary issues.
Below you’ll find our longlist of what’s on at the festival. We’ve also grouped together some standout events that you may not already be aware of in separate guides: Don’t Miss, Try Something New, Visual Arts and Free Things To Do.
