Box on the Docks is an innovative foodie experience on the piazza at MediaCityUK. Several local restaurants have special colourfully painted, COVID-safe ‘dining pods’, in the shape of sheds and greenhouses, inviting customers to enjoy food, music and art in a socially distanced environment. The initiative has been a big success so far – so this Bank Holiday Weekend, the organisers behind it are laying on some special events.

From Friday 28 to Sunday 30 August, there will be popular street food vendors in residence, including Korean Grub Club, Grandad’s Sausages, and sweet treats from Spoon Desserts – and there’s also socially distanced picnic spots where you can sit and enjoy your scran. If that doesn’t sound relaxing enough, bring your mat and you can take part in a free yoga class – and for the kiddies, there’s the brand new CBeebies Pod and an art trail which talks children through the artistic inspirations behind each pod’s design.

Also, from Saturday to Monday, the popular Makers Market – featuring stalls from local creators and artisan food producers – will be taking place outside The Lowry Outlet. See the link below for times and details.
