Check out our pick of the events taking place in Manchester this spring
True to seasonal form, Manchester bursts into life come spring, with a whole host of events that not only keep locals entertained but which also attract those from further afield. And with world-class film festivals, St. Patrick's Day celebrations at like few others (Manchester pubs know what they're doing), massive gigs (so do its live music venues) and even an event paying homage to our fair city itself, it's easy to see why spring is such a good time in Manchester. Enjoy.
There's always a lot going on in Manchester, with every year dishing up a diverse selection of festivals, fairs, celebrations, concerts, community bits and bobs, seasonal stuff and special events at museums, galleries and attractions
