Manchester Medieval Quarter Festival
A unique family-friendly festival in Manchester’s historic medieval quarter returns for its second year on 23 – 24 September 2023.
It features fascinating history tours, live music, film screenings, workshops, food and drink, and medieval entertainment, plus historical reenactment from Historia Normannis!
Chetham’s School of Music, Chetham’s Library and Manchester Cathedral make the most complete medieval site to survive in the north of England and the Manchester we know and love today grew from this area. These buildings date back to 1421 and Chetham’s was originally used to accommodate the priests of Manchester’s Collegiate Church. The two-day festival celebrates this rich history and the incredible stories from Manchester’s past.
It opens from 10am – 3pm on Saturday 23 September and Sunday 24 September.
You can simply wander through the festival (free of charge) to take in the sights and visit the stalls or book tickets to special events.
