Joining them will be the fantastic Manchester Fashion Movement (MFM) pop-up hosting a Den takeover, showing buyers how to shop ethically and sustainably through creative workshops geared towards highlighting an emphasis on supporting the work of bespoke brands.

From gift boxes, branded glasses, enamel badges and much more merch–you’ll definitely find something here. They’ll will, of course, also be serving their award-winning lagers alongside some freshly-baked Bavarian pretzels.

To top it all off, Grandad’s Sausages will be selling their scran throughout the fair, serving up favourites like the BBQ banger,

The Ancoats Community Choir will be singing their hearts out from 6.30pm to bring the festivities to a close in their typical merry style.
