Over 2,000 participants from local communities bring Manchester city centre to life on Manchester Day.  Participants are selected through an application process.


Manchester City Council would like to say a massive ‘thank you’ to all the many participants, community groups, bands, drummers, dancers, creators,  creative mentors, artists, artist assistants and Walk the Plank who have worked so hard to make Manchester Day such a success.  

We’d also like to thank our sponsors and supporters for their commitment and support, and of course everyone who has come along to celebrate this fantastic day.

Here are the groups that took part in Manchester Day 2017:
