Quickly becoming a stalwart of the summer arts festival season, the Manchester International Festival is attracting global recognition as a launching ground for new and innovative performances, artists and music. 2011 sees the premiere of A list productions created by Björk, Damon Albarn and Victoria Wood, and also encompasses new and upcoming artists’ exhibitions. Manchester has a rich cultural history, and now this annual festival is putting the city back at the cutting edge.
Taking place across the vibrant city, the festival utilises the city’s usual arts venues, such as the Manchester Art Gallery and Palace Theatre, as well as the more unusual, such as Campfield Market Hall. The festival has a central hub in the historic Albert Square, giving all visitors information and access to some of the free events featured on the packed schedule.
It’s a good time to buy property in Manchester. With prices considerably lower than the South East, the area is experiencing a period of sustained growth helped by high profile investment from the likes of the BBC, as they move the majority of their staff to Salford.
