We Love Manchester

An internationally iconic city brand and trusted voice adopted by Manchester people, championing community, charity and a better future for the city. Inspiring community-led cleanups, the “I Love Manchester” campaign was a movement that positively resonated with residents and visitors alike. The charity continues to give back to the city and we are proud to work with them to make Lightopia accessible to all in Manchester! 




Situated in South East London, Crystal Palace Park is a welcoming place for all.
