University of Manchester: 2018 Community Festival – Manchester Museum

Following the huge success of the first University-wide Community Festival in 2017, staff and students are invited to join in the fun next year on Saturday 16 June.

As part of the University’s commitment to enhancing its relationship with the local community, the first University-wide Community Festival took place in June last year. The event was a great success attracting nearly 2,000 visitors from across Manchester.

The next Community Festival will take place at Manchester Museum , University Place and Bridgeford Street

The Festival is a great opportunity for the University to enhance its engagement with the local neighbourhood communities by running a free, fun and interactive event for individuals and families. The Festival also provides opportunities to engage with the community through a variety of University activities e.g. research, learning, sport, cultural institutions and our students. From family-friendly table top activities to guided tours and musical performances, we are looking for expressions of interest for those wishing to get involved.

Community Festival 2017

Our free Community Festival packed with fun family-friendly interactive activities took place on 17 June 2017. We threw open our doors for our local neighbours to discover the variety of things we do here at the University of Manchester. Visitors went behind the scenes at the University to find out all about our work and get hands-on with a variety of exciting activities.

The day was filled with fascinating activities, including:

  • Live experiments
  • Interactive demonstrations
  • Musical and dramatic performances
  • The chance to meet our staff and scientists
  • Behind the scenes tours
  • Workshops
  • Much, much more!
