SPEARFISH present EUROCULTURED 2010
Bank Holiday – May 30th and 31st!!!
Spearfish are proud to present the seventh installment of the Eurocultured Street Festival in Manchester.
In 2009, 18,000 people attended to celebrate the diversity of European culture in all its forms. Acts perform in the street, in car parks, on stages, under tunnels and railway arches as well as in 6 venues on the festival site. Most of the festival site is covered, so whatever the weather, it’s going to be a special couple of days!
