Locals & Visitors Invited to Manchester’s Sadler’s Yard Garden Party

Locals and visitors are invited to gather in the heart of the NOMA neighbourhood for The Big Garden Party, taking place 11am-7pm on Saturday 10th September.

The free-to-attend summer family festival is returning for its sixth year at Sadler’s Yard, this time with a new name and focus, but with the same promise of great food, seasonal beers, street food, live music and creative workshops for the whole family to enjoy.

NOMA’s latest initiative led by Standard Practice with The National Trust, PlantNOMA, will sit at the heart of the event in the gardens. There will opportunities to make a table top Worm Farm with The Urban Worm, make seed bombs and grow micro herbs with Sow the City, take a walking tour with Skyliner and much more.

Alongside this, music has been curated by Stutter and Twich Altrincham with music from The String Bean and DJ’s in Sadler’s Yard till 7pm on the day. Music will follow on late into the night at The Sadler’s Cat.

The iconic, newly opened New Century building will have its doors open too, with a selection of independent food offerings from a variety of local vendors, including Zumuku Sushi, Ply, chef Tom Lowe, Banh Vi, BaoBros23 and Adam Reid’s ‘posh butties’. Food will also be provided from Yellowhammer, DGHNT and Desert Island Dumplings in Sadler’s Yard.

Visitors can also get a taster of The Big Garden Party at a special lunchtime Neighbourhood preview on Thursday 8th September in Sadler’s Yard from 12 – 2pm.

Dan Hyde, Investment Director at MEPC, said: “The Big Garden Party is a fantastic opportunity for visitors and locals to celebrate the drawing of the summer months by getting together and enjoying local food, drinks, music, gardening, crafts, socialising and more – there’ll be something for everyone and we’re expecting a great turnout.

“This event, as with other NOMA initiatives is underpinned by our commitment to an inclusive, forward thinking, neighbourhood-led approach in what we do and we can’t wait for everyone to enjoy it as they have done in previous years.”
