5 Things to do in Manchester this May Bank Holiday Weekend
It’s looking to be a weekend with more sunshine than usual for our May bank holiday weekend this year. That makes a big difference from the typical rainy bank holiday Mondays that we are used to in the city. While there are lots of activities and events to choose from, we’ve selected a few related to a mixture of music, art, exhibitions, and food.
Sounds from the Other City
This one is for all festival lovers. Taking place on Chapel Street in Salford, Sounds from the Other City celebrates new music on Sunday 6th May. This event brings music and art together between 2.00pm and 9.00pm. Don’t miss out and get your tickets here.
