Creative Lead/Leads and Artists for Manchester Day 2020

Closing date: 7 November 2019

Job Description

After 10 amazing years creating the biggest celebration of community life in Manchester, we’re heading into our 11th year with exciting plans for a sustainable creative approach to Manchester’s big day out – which includes a city centre parade and outdoor events in several of the city centre’s squares.

Over the past 10 years we’ve helped a rich and diverse range of community groups celebrate their identity within the context of a big parade which, each year, is given a unifying theme.

Interested?  Then please send your CV to  Closing date for applications is Thursday 7 November.

Also, if you’re an artist interested in being part of this event in 2020, but not looking for a creative lead role, we’d also be interested to hear from you.  Again, please send your CV to the above email address by the same time frame.

Please note, you will need to be available to work on this project in a part-time capacity from November through to delivery of the event in mid June 2020.  Your involvement will be more intensive in the two months leading up to Manchester Day.

 “Welcome to a celebration of the city which has warmed the hearts of everyone involved: for 10 years people have given their time, energy and ideas to come together to make things – costumes, choreographed routines, music, floats, big puppets and small props…..all made by hand out of cardboard, cotton and recycled materials.  Along the way new friendships have formed, new skills have been learnt and conversations have been started between people who otherwise might never meet.  This is what Manchester Day is all about.”

Liz Pugh, Creative Producer and Walk the Plank co-founder.
