Manchester Events 2023.

Manchester has a lot to look forward to in 2023. Here’s our top 5 events that we can’t wait for.

Ashes Cricket comes to Manchester.

Let’s face it, we are very lucky here with sporting events. Football is our main passion but we’re also blessed with rugby teams, golf courses and one of the country’s best test match cricket venues. Australia are the visiting team this year and the test match begins on 19th July. There’ll be a great atmosphere in the city and we’re expecting a lot of hungry Aussies to join our food tours.

Manchester International Festival.

It’s back. The Manchester International Festival begins at the end of June and is an 18 day festival full of events and performances. Since it’s first edition in 2007 the festival has attracted some of the world’s greatest artists to our city. Events are being announced as we get nearer the summer but keep your eye on and grab the most popular tickets first.

Manchester Music Festivals.

As everyone knows we love our music here in Manchester. Every summer the city is a hotbed of concerts and festivals. bands from around the world love performing here and we love having them. One of the most talked about gigs is Manchester’s own The Courteeners playing at Heaton park in June. June also sees The Arctic Monkeys, Cold Play and Elton John in town.

New Places to eat.

Manchester’s food scene id constantly evolving. 2023 promises some exciting new openings for our food scene. One that we’re really looking forward to is Disorder in the Northern Quarter. We’re excited because it’s on our food tour route. It promises a mixture of Japanese bar food and Mancunian music. What more do you need?

Manchester Museum opens again in February.

The Manchester museum is over 130 years old and houses some amazing artefacts of natural and and human history. Over the past years the museum has undergone a £15 million refurbishment. The museum re-opens in February. Expect a Chinese cultural gallery, a dinosaur display and a Belonging Gallery which tells the story of the first climate migrants to arrive in the area.

There are literally thousands of events going on in the city this year. Plenty to look forward to. We love hosting our food tours and showing visitors some of our favourite eating places in the city. If you’re coming to Manchester for an event we’d love to show you round. Find out more on our tours page and we’ll hopefully see you this year.
