Manchester Day – Sunday 19th June

Sunday 19 June, 12 noon to 6pm, Manchester City Centre

EUREKA! You’ve discovered the best day out this summer…

Come and see over 2,000 performers and artists bring our fantastic city centre to life in a fusion of colour, sound and movement.

This year’s theme, EUREKA! will take you on an adventure of wonder, invention and curiosity as we celebrate our status as European City of Science 2016.

Get your inventive spirit at the ready as we travel through time and space with Albot2, Manchester Day’s very own time-travelling robot.

Expect to see colliding life-size atoms, dancers drawn down Deansgate by magnetic attraction and ancient Chinese inventors making sparks fly, while Archimedes contemplates the world from his bathtub.

Don’t miss our amazing parade, leaving Liverpool Road at 1pm before weaving its way through the city centre to finish in Exchange Square at approximately 2.30pm.

Be sure to explore Manchester’s squares, with incredible performances, street decorations and mouth-watering food and drink throughout the day. The Town Hall will also be home to The Brain Box – an interactive laboratory welcoming scientists from the city’s universities to conduct fascinating live experiments in front of the Manchester Day audience.

You’ve found it! A truly memorable day out for all the family, and it’s free too.

Keep up with the journey up until Manchester Day, 19 June – along with all the Manchester Day updates and news @manc_day
