SPEARFISH present EUROCULTURED 2011
Bank Holiday – May 29th and 30th!!!
Spearfish are proud to present the 8th installment of the Eurocultured Street Festival in Manchester.
In 2010, 18,000 people attended Eurocultured 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 venues on the festival site. Most of the site is covered, so whatever the weather, it’s going to be a special couple of days!
For an idea of what the festival is like, watch the Eurocultured 2010 video here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lmx9ItFoNkM
