In support of CityCo’s 2010 Manchester’s Magical Christmas campaign, Piccadilly Gardens was transformed into a family fun fair, which looks set to become an annual festive event.
Manchester’s Magical Christmas campaign aimed to attract visitors into the city centre to enjoy a host of events, food, drink and entertainment in the run up to Christmas.
Working with partners including Manchester City Council, CityCo and Piccadilly Partnership co-ordinated the transformation of Piccadilly Gardens into a traditional fairground. Visitors could enjoy a Victorian-style helta-skelter, carousel, chair swings, games and a number of chalet-style food stalls. Hot cocktails, traditional ales and music courtesy of Band on the Wall were also on offer at Kro’s Big Top Bar.
The festive fair, which will be developed for Christmas 2011 following lots of positive feedback, is part of Piccadilly Partnership’s on-going commitment to develop the area as a welcoming and safe, family-friendly destination.
