Manchester Medieval Quarter Festival
** The festival will return in 2025 **
A unique family-friendly festival in Manchester’s historic medieval quarter returned for its second year on 23 – 24 September 2023.
It featured 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 celebrated this rich history and the incredible stories from Manchester’s past.
