Set up camp at Festival Square
Eat at the Café, relax with a cocktail at the swanky Glass House, or catch a DJ set at the Pavillion Theatre…this is the heart of MIF.
Bring the family
While most of the top billed performances probably aren’t suitable for little ones, there are plenty of family-friendly events, including some first-rate children’s theater.
See the sights
This is a whole-city festival, where all of Manchester is the venue. Take advantage and see the Museum of Science & Industry, Old Trafford stadium (this is the home of the world’s most popular team, after all) and Manchester Art Gallery (if you’re still in the mood for more art).
