The seventh annual Manchester Day is this weekend. Every year, the event has a theme, and this time it’s ‘Abracadabra’ – a celebration of the everyday magic of the city. The centrepiece will be the parade, which last year saw over 2,000 people take part and 60,000 come out to watch. It will leave Liverpool Road in the early afternoon, and weave its way through the city until it reaches Exchange Square, around an hour and a half later. Expect singers, dancers, and drummers – all in vibrant dress. As well as all the usual bells and whistles you’d expect from a Walk The Plank production, the city centre’s squares will become open air venues for performance, music, and theatre.
Sun 18 Jun, Manchester city centre, noon -6pm (parade 1-2.30pm), FREE, www.manchesterday.co.uk
