Join us in celebrating the city region’s rich history and heritage with over 50 stalls from museums, archives & projects from across Greater Manchester.
As well as the stall holders – a who’s who of local cultural organisations – there will be plenty more to do, with something for everyone.
Fun for all with creative workshops, musical performances, a real vintage bus, ice-cream van, and a pop up museum courtesy of Manchester Museum!
