Manchester's Eurocultured Street Festival
The annual Eurocultured festival is bringing a diverse measure of culture right to your doorstep in the cosmopolitan city of Manchester. This May, Eurocultured will be representing 21 different countries with some of their talents, tastes and inspirations.
The festival is evoking the roots of Hip Hop with break-dancers of all ages (some who look like they missed learning to walk and gone straight into break dancing) set to perform some jaw dropping moves. Graffiti artists with artistic flairs to match that of Banksy will be painting their way into your hearts to win you over and express their talent in visual form.
There will be live music with DJs providing the body-quaking music to fuel the urban street party; if that’s not what you fancy then you can sample the poetry talent or flex your creativity in the creative workshops.
The Eurocultured festival aims to reflect the diversity of the present European culture through the many different forms of art, and after six years the festival is becoming bigger and better than ever.
Dotted around different locations in Manchester’s city centre, it’s a culture buffet that brings the city alive, with something for everyone; it’s a truly engaging event.
Every year the Eurocultured attracts a lively crowd, where everyone participates in, observes and admires the acts and displays on show. This year is no different, with fingers crossed for sunny warm weather; we’ll be there, drinks in hand and in the festival spirit.
It’s the perfect reason to not stay in, so we hope to see you there!
