Sunday 14th June 2015. Pencil it in your diary. In fact write it in permanent marker because it’s Manchester Day!
Manchester Day is day to celebrate all things Mancunian and shows everyone just what an amazing city Manchester is. It’s a day when the community comes together, families can walk the streets proudly displaying their love for this wonderful city and new friends can be made watching the parade. Councillor Pat Karney, Chair of Manchester Day, proclaims: “Manchester Day is the perfect opportunity to have a fantastic day out and show your love for your city by coming down with your family.” Councillor Rosa Battle, executive member for culture and leisure, says: “First and foremost, the Manchester Day is for families. The past four events have shown this with generations coming together to enjoy the party…Throughout Manchester’s history it has proved that it is a city of game changers and the scope for community groups to be creative with their ideas is huge.”
There will be music, acts, dancing, singing, every festivity you can think of.
After the roaring success of the previous 4 year’s Manchester Day is returning and they want people like you to get involved. They are looking for individuals or groups to participate and perform in this years event. This means you can either be part of the parade or perhaps get decorating one of the squares or even just volunteering on the day to help make sure things run smoothly.
If this doesn’t float your boat then no worries, the more people who come to watch the better. There seems to be something for everyone on Manchester Day.
However, if you are interested in helping out and making this years Manchester Day better than ever then sign up here. Have no fear if you’re signing up on your own, you will be put with other groups!
