Hats entertainment is 10 out of 10 for Manchester Day

Make your very own hat for Manchester’s big day out and join in the People’s Procession

Volunteers and artists have been busy behind the scenes getting ready for this year’s Manchester Day, which returns for its tenth outing on Sunday 23 June.

The huge, free celebration of the city – for the people, by its people – has grown to be one of the biggest events in the region’s calendar, this year celebrating the theme: 10 out of 10.

With the event less than two weeks away, ‘Creation Stations’ around the city are opening workshops ahead of the event where people will have the chance to make their own party hat, to be worn during the city-centre Manchester Day celebrations, and take part in a people’s procession leading up to a finale in Cathedral Gardens.

The free workshops will provide a host of environmentally friendly hat-making materials and offer artistic and practical support throughout the creative process – allowing attendees the opportunity to design the perfect accouterment to cap off their preparations for the big day.

For those unable to visit the workshops ahead of the event, there will be a chance to get arty and craft their own celebratory headgear at The Creation Station in St Ann’s Square on Manchester Day. Parading experts will be on hand – from noon until 5pm – to show attendees how best to flaunt their fabulous creations.

Then, at 5pm, everyone is invited to join the ‘People’s Procession’ – a promenade through the streets to reach the Manchester Day finale in Cathedral Gardens.

The FREE workshops are for all ages with sessions across the city:
