Break out your deckchair and ditch the morning rush for a sun lounger this summer by making Manchester Day – On Holiday your destination.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 29 as the day that summer officially starts as Manchester Day – On Holiday kicks off, the standout event of the summer that you won’t want to miss.

This year the Council is once again teaming up with Walk The Plank to offer a jam-packed schedule of family fun, that will see Manchester city centre transformed from dawn ‘til dusk, bringing the holiday vibes without having to go near the M60.

In a change from previous events, this year’s celebrations will see attractions dotted throughout the city centre during the day, from Deansgate, Exchange Square, to St Ann’s Square, running from 12pm to 9pm.

Once the sun starts to set, the good times will continue as the focus shifts to the Northern Quarter, with revellers able to keep soaking up the evening sunshine (we hope!) as the party continues.

As we get closer to Manchester Day - On Holiday, more information will be made available about the event, including new events, stalls and entertainment. Keep your eyes peeled on the Council’s social media pages to make sure you’re in the know.

Councillor Pat Karney, Chair of Manchester Day, said:

“Manchester Day - On Holiday is already shaping up to be an amazing addition to Manchester’s summer calendar. If there is one thing this city knows how to do, it’s throw a party and I’m incredibly excited for the public to see what we have in store this summer.

“We know that this year sees a change to the usual celebrations but we are sure residents of all ages will come in their thousands to soak up the holiday atmosphere and have a fantastic day out.

“We have a lot of fun ideas up our sleeves and we can’t wait to tell the public what we have on offer over the coming weeks. Make sure you mark your diaries for July 29th as the fun is just getting started.”
