The Manchester Flower Show that many love hasn’t returned since 2003 – exactly 18 years. It first launched in 1955 and was an annual event for almost 50 years.
But this year, this event that has historic roots in Manchester is returning. It will welcome visitors this May with floral displays, green installations and even dining and entertainment experiences for those who choose to visit.
It will be held from the 29th of May (Saturday) to the 6th of June 2021 (Sunday).
Bright and beautiful paths will be created in the city including New Cathedral Street, Market Street, Exchange Square, Manchester Arndale, Selfridges, The Printworks, Corn Exchange, Manchester Cathedral, the Science and Industry Museum, Whitworth Art Gallery, St Ann’s Square, Stevenson Square, Spinningfields, etc.
The nine-day event is organized by CityCo and Manchester Business Improvement District. It is said that it won’t be an ordinary flower show – it will be a festival of flowers that tries to bring colour and beauty to Manchester.
A lot of businesses across the city are said to take part in this event and will showcase floral displays, window dressings and some restaurants and pubs will even create themed menus for all to enjoy.
This will be the first major event in Manchester ever since the pandemic hoping that it will welcome shoppers and visitors safely back in the city.
