    Volunteers will have a wide range of responsibilities and will be positioned all around the city and will be assisted by a team leader who’ll be available to help them throughout the day.


    And you can volunteer for any length of time between a few hours to a few weeks in the build-up.

    Manchester Day is created by Manchester People, commissioned by Manchester City Council and produced by Walk the Plank.

    Coun Pat Karney, chair of Manchester Day, said: “It’s great that Manchester Day is returning to the city, Manchester Day’s success relies on the passion of our thousands of volunteers who dedicate their time each year. The day would not be the same without the enthusiasm of our army of volunteers.

    “I can’t wait to see people get involved in the parade, if this is your first Manchester Day, I can guarantee you’re going to love it!”
