Winter in Spinningfields

Ian Jones, Food and Drink Editor

Spinningfields has grown into one of Manchester’s standout districts in recent years. It’s great to wander around in, thanks to its relaxed, safe atmosphere, plus it’s jam-packed with some of the city’s very best bars, restaurants and places to hang out. And this winter it has outdone itself. You’ll find a host of free-to-attend events dotted around the streets and plazas this winter, including dance performances and family-friendly bits and bobs, plus some of the best food and drink options in Manchester.

We’ve put together a guide covering the lot, including some of the best January deals, whether that’s restaurant deals to get through the cold early weeks of 2023, or vegan offerings for everyone looking to live more ethically, all the way up to Valentine’s Day so you can woo your boo in Manchester’s most appealing and modern district.
