PREVIEW: Manchester Day 2015

The city's flagship parade will return on Sunday 14 June and they're looking for participants

Published on January 7th 2015.


PREVIEW: Manchester Day 2015
 

LAST YEAR'S Manchester Day parade saw tens of thousands of visitors and participants from local organisations turn the city centre into a colourful festival full of floats and artworks, from a humongous red horse, a giant disco ball, to 'the return of the Concorde' and oh - Councillor Pat Karney gape-mouthed with paint on his face.

"First and foremost, the Manchester Day is for families. The past four events have shown this with generations coming together to enjoy the party"

Returning to the city on Sunday 14 June, 2015's parade is set to be even bigger and they're looking for some of the city's most creative minds to help bring it all together. 

Now in its sixth year, producers of the event, Walk the Plank, and their acclaimed artists will be working directly with local groups and participants to bring to life the most adventurous and inventive suggestions. All ideas are welcome regardless of the size of the vision or if you think it is even possible.

The parade follows a one mile route from Liverpool Road, down Deansgate and on to more entertainment, food and drink in the many public squares of the city: Albert's, St Ann's, Exchange and Great Northern.

Ready for another year, Councillor Pat Karney, Chair of Manchester Day, said: "I have been blown away by the imagination and creativity the groups have shown on previous Manchester Days and the scope seems to grow year on year.

“Manchester Day is the perfect opportunity to have a fantastic day out and show your love for your city by coming down with your family.”

Councillor Rosa Battle, executive member for culture and leisure, said: "First and foremost, the Manchester Day is for families. The past four events 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 game changers 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."

Interested participants can also find out more at a public event at Manchester Town Hall on Saturday 10 January (11am and 2pm) where interested participants are welcome to come along, share ideas with Walk the Plank and see what it takes to be part of the show.
