Hosted by Manchester’s ultimate dining and leisure destination, Great Northern Warehouse, the free-to-attend Deansgate Mews street festival offers live music, family-friendly activities, independent market traders and plenty of space for al fresco dining and sunshine sippin’! Much to the relief of regulars, the festival returns this weekend, Friday 26th. – Sunday 28th May.
Expect an outdoor pop-up stage at popular neighbourhood bar Lions Den, which will host 30+ live local acts across the three days, alongside food and drinks offers from the restaurants and bars situated on Deansgate Mews including The Mews Bar, Another Hand, Acai & the Tribe and Low Four.
Outdoor market stalls will feature a whole host of goodies to purchase, including chocolate treats from Dormouse, plus art, flowers and plants, and more to be announced soon – all raising money for local charity Forever Manchester – the only charity that raises money to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester.
Alongside this, there will a pop-up Gift Emporium with local Manchester brands, with stalls offering a range of unique and quirky gifts. The Village Hall will house a retro vinyl sale, with the opportunity for those wanting to sell records to trade in this space on the day, ensuring a rich mixture of music and taste.
Deansgate Mews Festival organisers are actively inviting a range of local independent businesses to showcase their products via a market stall and meet new customers face to face at this year’s festival, building a sense of community and allowing locals and visitors to mingle whilst enjoying a lovely day out.
We’re really hoping for some gorgeous weather for the bank holiday weekend, so festival visitors can enjoy the surroundings with a drink and some nibbles after a stroll round the stalls, but if not, there’s still plenty to see and do!
The festival will run from Friday 26th. – Sunday 28th May on Deansgate Mews, and is free to attend.
