Let’s have it Manchester! Get ready to make up for lost time. In line with Government guidelines, our venues will be open for indoor dining and entertainment with no restrictions from 19th July. Please book in advance where possible. Find out how we’re reopening safely here.




It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that this year’s Manchester Soul Festival will not go ahead as planned over the August Bank Holiday as a result of ongoing uncertainties.

While we support The Christie with events throughout the year, The Manchester Soul Festival is our flagship event and we’re extremely proud to have raised over £128,000 since 2015.

The safety of our guests is always our number one priority and the current situation is too uncertain to guarantee this.

We’d like to thank the Printworks team, Soul Festival Committee members, entertainers and guests who make the event a success every single year for your understanding.

Until the next one, keep the faith.
