Castlefield will be sponsoring Dig the City

23rd – 29th July 2012 We’re delighted to announce that Castlefield will be sponsoring Dig the City, the first urban garden festival of its kind in a major UK city. In partnership with key public and private sector organisations within the city, including Manchester Cathedral, Manchester Arndale, Manchester City Council and the National Football Museum, Castlefield will be championing a week long festival in celebration of music and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. At the end of July, Manchester’s Medieval Quarter will be transformed into a sea of green and colour, festooned with stunning displays of floral art. Over 200 volunteers will create a huge spectacle of 40,000 cut flowers inside Manchester Cathedral depicting music across the ages. The festival will extend to the surrounding areas with pop up allotments, flower markets and gardening activities. Exchange Square will have its own Olympic theme, and the now pedestrian Victoria Street will feature HRH Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Garden which will be rebuilt for visitors to enjoy. Visitors can enjoy a sumptuous afternoon tea courtesy of Harvey Nichols inside the Diamond Jubilee Marquee. Castlefield will even have our own dedicated floral display inside the Cathedral! Manchester Cathedral, the driving force behind the festival and one of Castlefield’s long-standing clients, hopes the festival will become an annual event, attracting many thousands of people into the city centre to celebrate horticulture, gardening and the changing city. Check out the attached flyer and the Dig the City website www.digthecity.co.uk for full information about the event. The majority of the activities and displays are free, so it’s a good day out for everyone. Compliance  JCBLOG/030512
