New Order x Blossoms @ Wythenshawe Park

Is there a more Manc way to spend a Bank Holiday than at a festival where the headliners were born and raised in the city? We doubt it.

Head on over to Wythenshawe Park to see New Order, originally from Salford, and the Blossoms, from Stockport, throw an absolute rager. With plenty of great support acts, you can head over for one day or two – and if last year is anything to go by, this is going to be an absolute banger.

Moovin Festival @ Whitebottom Farm

Like the idea of a festival for the weekend, but want something just a little more – special? Moovin Festival is the place to be.

This is their 7th year running, and what started out as a small gathering of a few hundred people has evolved into so much more. Along with live music, there’s walkabout performers, fire shows, morning gong baths, yoga classes – believe us when we tell you this is a festival like no other, and one you do not want to miss out on.

Manchester Craft Beer Experience

Not too keen on the whole festival vibe, but want to get out and about and have a few drinks on the way? The Manchester Craft Beer Experience could be right up your street.

You’ll be guided round several hidden craft beer gems around the city that you might not have even known existed, learn about the brewing processes, and get the chance to sample a variety of beers handpicked by your guide to offer you a diverse and exciting tasting experience. It’s about a mile walk all-in, but you’ll have plenty of stops along the way.

Manchester Pride

How can we talk about the August Bank Holiday without talking about Pride? Manchester’s Pride Celebrations are some of the biggest, with people travelling hundreds of miles to get involved.

With huge names including Jessie J and Loreen performing in the Gay Village Party, you also have the Pride Parage, the Candlelit Vigil, Youth Pride MCR, Family Pride MCR, Superbia, and the Human Rights Forum. Whether you’re a proud member of the community, or there to show your support, get down and be a part of something unforgettable.
