A Free Street Festival With Food, Drink & Live Music Is Coming To The Great Northern This Month

A free street festival is set to take over Deansgate Mews.

The events are coming thick and fast as we enter the final month of summer (and the first month fully out of lockdown restrictions), and there are no signs of things slowing down just yet – with the Great Northern Warehouse announcing a free, three-day festival set to take place next weekend.

Taking over Deansgate Mews between August 27th – 29th, the festival is set to bring plenty of food, drink and live music to the city – providing the perfect celebration for those still getting back to ‘normal’ after over a year and a half living in the pandemic.

Attendees can expect an outdoor stage with a packed roster of live music at The Lion’s Den, BBQ grub from The Butcher’s Quarter – alongside locally sourced cheeses and meats – as well as tons of market stalls offering local crafts, food, gifts and more.

The Butcher’s Quarter’s owner, Graeme Hogg said: “We’re extremely excited to take part in the Mews Street Festival and offer the people of Manchester the freshest and most scrumptious meats, cheeses and wines. With everyone that is lined up, it looks like this festival will be one to remember.”

Mark Schofield, Centre Director for Great Northern Warehouse said: “We are delighted to once again be hosting The Deansgate Mews Festival. It was always our ambition to make this festival an annual part of the Great Northern calendar and it feels amazing to be able to welcome Mancunians for a free weekend of music, accompanied by food, drink and shopping, after a year’s break due to the pandemic.”

The festival was originally set to take place between 6th and 8th of August, however, was postponed due to bad weather conditions.
