Our post-pandemic return to the city centre saw Manchester buzzing once more – and shone a spotlight on our city’s children and young people.
We were joined in 2022 by a very special guest: Little Amal, a Syrian refugee who arrived in the city in 2021 after an 8,000km walk through 65 European cities, towns and villages. Having made Manchester her home in late 2021, Little Amal was out exploring on Sunday and joined in the Manchester Day fun.
Once again, we put environmental sustainability at the heart of Manchester Day, both through the events on the day and the ways in which we worked to reduce, reuse and recycle. All structures were either pushed, pulled, pedalled or powered by electricity – including, at the back, Manchester City Council’s first electric street cleaning truck.
