Manchester International Festival (MIF) is the world’s first festival of original, new work and special events. Over the past 12 years, more than a million people have experienced MIF projects around the city and beyond. Created by leading international artists, often working in collaboration with local residents, MIF works have thrilled visitors, impressed critics and inspired people all over Greater Manchester.

During lockdown MIF have moved their ‘My Festival Socials’ online and have teamed up with DIY to offer ‘Let’s Connect’ their first free event of the year!
