Join your fellow citizens for an extraordinary journey through Manchester. Utopolis Manchester is a visionary site-specific work that uses intricate tapestries of sound and voices to transform our view of the city. Gathering in dozens of small groups at multiple locations, we’ll head out to explore the people and places that shape Manchester’s daily life – and discover the many ways in which citizens build communities, society and democracy. As our assembly reaches critical mass, a question emerges. Can a group of disparate individuals come together to forge a utopian state? And how large can this system grow before it falls apart? Created by Rimini Protokoll and inspired by Thomas More’s Utopia, Utopolis Manchester asks whether another society might exist, if only for a utopian moment… Utopolis Manchester takes place in multiple locations around the city. Your meeting place is on your e-ticket and if you are unable to find your location please call 0333 320 2890 or contact us on Twitter or Facebook.

This event takes place across a series of secret locations across Manchester city centre. Groups of participants will start from a variety of meeting points around Manchester city centre and at the northern end of Oxford Road.
The event lasts for approximately 4-4.5 hours, and around half of that time will be spent outdoors.
The event involves significant amounts of time walking or travelling between locations.
Walking distances and routes will depend on your initial meeting point. On average, you can expect to spend around 1-1.5 hours travelling between venues, walking up to three miles in the process.
Although most people will walk, you are welcome to use other modes of travel, including public transport or bicycles.
There are a number of shorter routes available. If you have identified yourself as having access requirements or limited mobility when you booked you will have been assigned one of these.
