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.

City centre events

Manchester stages the best events, and we are part of the picture. CityCo and the Manchester BID support the city’s civic and public festivals such as Manchester Day, Manchester Pride and Manchester International Festival, working with stakeholders to ensure the city is running as smoothly as possible when people get here.

We also run our own flagship events to bring people into Manchester city centre.  Our events have included Dig the City, The Manchester Picnic, Manchester Canal Festival and Northern Quarter Street Parties.

Our Manchester BID pillar events are Chinese New Year, MCR Student Social (Spring and Autumn Terms), The King Street Festival and Halloween in the City.
