‘It is extraordinary how rapidly MIF has established itself… It looks to the future’ The Observer, July 2015

Manchester International Festival (MIF) is the world’s first festival of original, new work and special events. Over the past 10 years, more than a million people have experienced MIF projects around the city and beyond – everywhere from theatres and galleries to schools, churches and railway depots. Created by leading international artists, often working in collaboration with local residents, our works have thrilled visitors, impressed critics and inspired people all over Greater Manchester.

Our success would not be possible without the generous support of the individuals, trusts, foundations, public funders and corporate sponsors who help to make the Festival happen. As a charity, we rely on private backing, and we’re enormously grateful to all our past, present and future supporters. On these pages, you can learn more about how you can join them, and us, on the journey to the 18 extraordinary days of MIF17.
