What Wedding? Manchester NQ Street Party

Just one tweet and….

Retro Candy, Cake, Arts & Crafts, Alcohol, Vintage Clothes and dozens of stalls opened by the Local Cafes, Boutiques and Restaurants….Oh and absolutely no talk of  “The Wedding” what so ever. 

Manchester’s 1940s Northern Quarter Street Party had a pretty good turn out and a delightfully dressed up one at that! There were a mix of those dipping their toes into 1940’s dress and those who plunged straight in! Bunting was strung across the street, market stalls lined the pavements and in the centre laid an endlessly large row of tables placed in the middle of the action.

Entertainment was far from little with the Busker’s Bandstand featuring a mix of folk bands and magicians and Local artists showcased their work in a series of live art performances. Later on in the day Manchester’s finest independent boutiques were able to strut their clothes down a catwalk which you were available for sale afterwards and  the ‘Red Arrows’ took to the streets with a bang!

But the entertainment didn’t stop there, with charity tombola, pass the parcel and the biggest treasure hunt round Manchester’s Northern Quarter, what better way to get to know the locals and lovers of the city than celebrating the independent parts of Manchester NQ with the whole lot?

It definitely made an impression on those who visit and those who live here. Lets hope for another one next year?
