11 things to look forward to in Manchester in 2024 including Co-op Live, Bee Network expansion and WOMEX

Here are some of the biggest events happening in Manchester in 2024.

The last 12 months have been busy for Manchester. 2023 was the year Aviva Studios opened, the year the Bee Network launched and the year a heritage fashion brand came to Manchester for the first time. 

But there is no rest for the wicked as 2024 is already shaping up to be a bumper year of international and national events in Manchester, plus some exciting new developments for the city. 

One development that we will not be expecting this year, however, is the reopening of our Town Hall. The multi-million pound renovation was slated for a 2024 completion, but it’s looking like we will have to wait another couple of years for that, sadly. 

Instead, here are 11 other Manchester events for your diary.
