Join our next Autumn Social on Sat 5 October

We’re delighted to announce details for our next social taking place in Ancoats on Saturday 5 October, 1-4pm.

MIF Socials are a fantastic opportunity to meet the MIF team and bring a wide range of people linked to the Festival together. The Autumn Social will be no exception with highlights  inspired by MIF19 events, including family-friendly activities, performances from our community choir, planting workshops, origami sessions, henna painting, face-painting and walking tours.

Meet new people, say hello to the MIF team and residents of Victoria Square, and find out how you can get involved in MIF’s year-round programme. As if you needed any further incentives, there’ll be free pizza from I Knead Pizza and free ice cream from Ginger’s Comfort Emporium. The event is open to everybody and completely free, but due to capacity we need to know you’re coming – click the link here to book your place and find out more.

My Festival’s previous Social and Welcome events have featured artistic responses, creative conversations and even cultural cuisine – and each one has been very special. If you’re interested in organising a future event, sign up to My Festival for updates on how you can get involved.
