Manchester Weekender 2011

Manchester Weekender is set to be one of the best events to hit the North this year! 48 hours of constant cultural celebrations in the form of art, culture, music, film, food, literature, politics, photography, walks, poetry, theatre and spectacle. With six of the city’s festivals happening, the opening of high-profile art exhibitions and the start of the city’s music and theatre seasons, Manchester in October has always been an exciting time. From the 14th to 16th October, the city will boast a programme of 70 events ranging from exhibitions, talks, workshops, performances, boat trips and screenings. Using the city’s museums and galleries, the weekend will present outstanding work by world-renowned artists and performers, bringing together unusual collaborations and introducing visitors to artistic experiences in a fun way.  If you want to be a part of all the fun, let Roomguide help you book cheap hotels in Manchester so you can be at the centre of it all!

Upcoming Festivals in Manchester

While the Weekender sees the best of Manchester over three days, it wouldn’t exist without the four amazing annual festivals that arrive alongside it each October. Whether you want a good read, a good meal or a good laugh, you are certain to find it in Manchester. Manchester Food and Drink Festival from the 7th - 17th October is first up, offering a number of gastronomic delights through the city’s streets and squares. Then it’s the Manchester Literature Festival, running from the 10th - 23rd October which will see authors from around the world share their inspirational work and ideas. Next up is this year’s Manchester Comedy Festival, held from the 17th – 30th October which is promising to be the biggest and best yet with comedians Rob Brydon, Paddy McGuiness, Andy Parsons and Steve Shanyaski. Last but not least, the Manchester Science Festival from the 22nd – 30th October which is a firm family favourite. The 9 day programme will see cutting edge research, scientific discovery shows and creative events.

Whether it’s The Weekender or the Food and Drink Festival, we have plenty of cheap hotels in Manchester so you can enjoy some of the UK’s best events this October.
