Picnic in the Park returning to Platt Fields Park

Picnic in the Park will return to Platt Fields Manchester

Streets Ahead are returning to Manchester with a free festival by the lakeside in Platt Fields Park, Manchester.

The event will feature street theatre and music for everyone, running from 1pm-6pm on Sunday 7 July.

Puppets and songs, circus and dance and a parent powered carousel are all part of a delightful afternoon of street theatre, acoustic music and fun activities for all, featuring a dazzling, if somewhat eccentric, array of performances including inquisitive but friendly ‘dogs’; superstars of the ballroom world; a quintessentially English display of equine dressage (all the way from France); and an opportunity to join a wedding ceremony!



Joining the event will be Cocoloco providing cabaret and frolics, amazing puppetry from Frolicked and Big Rory with his dog Ochie, L’Elephant Vert, Les Goulous, plus a few surprises.
