CityCo and the Manchester BID run high-profile networking events and flagship public events to bring people into the city. We support Manchester’s major festivals and through our district forums and working groups, we help members to have their opinion heard and shape what happens here.

Manchester BID Events

Manchester’s Business Improvement District is a consortium of 400+ businesses in the retail district managed by CityCo. We run an annual programme of public events and festivals that attract people to shop, eat, drink and enjoy all our great city has to offer.

Manchester BID’s pillar events are:

Spring / Summer
MCR Student Social (Spring Term)
Mystery Shopping Awards
The King Street Festival

Autumn / Winter
MCR Student Social (Autumn Term)
Halloween in the City
Chinese New Year

Since the BID’s launch in 2013 we’ve also celebrated Eid, brought floral Show Gardens to the shopping streets at our summer festival Dig the City and hosted the super-stylish Vogue Fashion’s Night Out in Manchester.
