Manchester Confidential plans massive event

We just don't know what it is yet – anyone got any ideas?

Published on October 20th 2009.


Manchester Confidential plans massive event
We like to stay busy here at Confidential Towers. When we're not conquering the world of online media, we're dreaming up other ways of making our mark on the landscape of Manchester. So when we saw Manchester City Council's recent advert asking people to submit ideas for events in the city, we got excited.

Some bright spark suggested we consult the Manchester Confidential Think Tank – i.e. the readers. After all, you're the ones who'd be attending it – tell us what you think would be a great event for Manchester.

Yes, we thought, a Manchester Confidential Event. It would be a way to bring together our online community for fun and celebration at an event that captures those things we love about this city: its energy, its swagger, its creativity, its unashamed belief that it's the centre of the universe. Our event could be funny, beautiful, quirky and inspiring. It could be talked about all over the world.

Then we went quiet. But what exactly would it be?

Some bright spark suggested we consult the Manchester Confidential Think Tank – i.e. the readers. After all, you're the ones who'd be attending it – tell us what you think would be a great event for Manchester. Then we'll put it to the Council, and if it all stacks up it'll happen sometime next year.

Ideas being thrown about the office include a mass eat-off, a mass dance-off, and a mass cook-off. We want something unusual and dramatic with a lot of local character – something along the lines of the gravy wrestling championships that get Bacup in the international news every year.

The Council, who'll be helping to pay for it, favour events that'll benefit the city in some way. For example, that raise the profile of Manchester, or attract tourists, or celebrate our heritage, or simply put a smile on our dour northern faces. It'll help if it fits in with the Council's strategic priorities, but this isn't a necessity. What they won't do is fund political events or events that are all about lining the pockets of the organiser (sorry, Gordo).

So click here to email your ideas for events– make them funny, make them realistic and deliverable, and most of all, make them Manc. We'll put the best ones to the Council. And before you know it, something big and exciting could be happening in the city – and it'll be your idea that was behind it all.

To make your suggestion simply email george@manchesterconfidential.com

All ideas must be submitted by 31 October 2009
