Caribbean Carnival of Manchester

Manchester Pride Big Weekend

Headlined by Ariana Grande herself, Manchester Pride Festival 2019 will be made up of Manchester Pride Live, the Candlelit Vigil, the Superbia Weekend, the Gay Village Party, Manchester Pride Parade and Youth Pride MCR. 

Manchester Fringe Festival

Bringing together the very best of Manchester’s alternative arts scene with an open access festival celebrating everything from dance to comedy to theatre to poetry - 2019’s Fringe Festival is due to be the biggest yet, and is the perfect place for young artists and creatives of all kind!


An astounding triathlon course consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride and a marathon 26.2 mile raced with no breaks - I’m getting out of breath just writing this. If you don’t want to compete, just watch the athletes do their thing and experience the buzz and electrifying atmosphere, it really is amazing.
