Be Part Of Manchester Day 2012

THERE'S less than three weeks left to submit applications to be part of next year’s Manchester Day Parade.

The theme of the 2012 event is 'The Sky’s the Limit…', a celebration of heroic achievements.

"Throughout Manchester’s history it has proved that it is a city of heroes and the scope for community groups to be creative with their ideas is huge."

Community groups, volunteers and organisations from across Manchester are invited to put forward their ideas inspired by the theme to create a parade that will wind through the city on Sunday 10 June.

Next year’s parade will celebrate the heroic achievements of the city’s men and women throughout history from science, technology and industry to sports, culture and the arts.

All ideas are welcome regardless of the size of the vision or if you think it is even possible.

Artists from outdoor arts organisation Walk the Plank will work with groups and individuals to bring life to the most adventurous and inventive suggestions with creativity and imagination.

Last year, around 3,000 participants from 96 Manchester charities, community groups and companies brought the streets of Manchester alive with the help thousands of local people who cheered the parade along.    

Councillor Pat Karney, Chair of Manchester Day and the council's Minister for Fun, said: "I've been blown away by the imagination and creativity the groups have shown in previous parades and the sky really is the limit this year and I’m sure we won’t be disappointed.

"The parade is the perfect opportunity to have a fantastic day out and show your love for your city by coming down with your family and support the City Centre and its businesses.”

Councillor Mike Amesbury, executive member for culture and leisure, said: "First and foremost, the Manchester Day Parade is for families. The last two parades have shown this with generations coming together to enjoy the party and be wowed by the artworks parading through the city.

"Throughout Manchester’s history it has proved that it is a city of heroes and the scope for community groups to be creative with their ideas is huge. I’m really looking forward to seeing what they come up with.”

To apply to take part in the 2012 Manchester Day Parade, fill in the Parade application form at www.themanchesterdayparade.co.uk/participants.

The application process closes on Friday 23 December and applicants will be informed whether they have been successful by mid-February 2012.
