In the middle of a summer celebration

Date: 19 Jun 2022

Local Start Time: 1:00pm

Location: Deansgate

As Amal starts her journey out of Manchester, she finds herself in the middle of a massive parade with thousands of children and families all celebrating the city they love as part of the now iconic Manchester Day.

Free to attend / no tickets required. 

Amal will join the parade shortly after it begins. As she walks, the various community groups of Manchester each offer her a flower, gradually building a bouquet for Amal as vibrant and diverse as the people of Manchester.

In partnership with Manchester City Council, Walk the Plank and Manchester International Festival.

“Manchester Day is the city’s way of celebrating everything we love about our incredibly diverse city and all its brilliant communities which together help make Manchester the best place in the world to be. We’re honoured to also have Little Amal with us this year, joining families and children as our iconic Manchester Day Parade makes its way through the city, and can’t wait to show her some Manchester love to hold in her heart and take with her on the next leg of her important journey.” – Councillor Pat Karney, Manchester City Council and Chair, Manchester Day
