With only three months left ‘til Christmas there’s so much in Manchester to look forward to:
Bee in the City

Since July 23rd there’s been a real buzz about the city! It’s the Wild in Art and Manchester City Council Bee in the City trail. Artists and organisations from Manchester have come together for this wonderful artistic project. View the maps here for a fun, free day out – but hurry! The colourful Bee trail is only staying until September 23rd!

Manchester Christmas Markets

November the 9th marks the first day of the Manchester Christmas Markets. Manchester becomes a glittering winter wonderland all through Albert Square, St Anne’s Square, Exchange Square, Market Street, Urbis, Corn Exchange and just about every nook of Manchester you can think of.

The stalls selling the most weird and wonderful delights throughout the city come from Germany and all over to celebrate the festivities and trade their crafty wares – handmade with the utmost love and care.

Winter Weddings

We love Winter weddings! Winter weddings really do embody the beauty of the traditional “white wedding.” Although we cater for weddings in all shapes and sizes all year round, Winter Weddings in Castlefield are a sight to behold. Barca holds a wedding license as a venue to be legally married, while many couples opt for our dreamy Catalan Suite for the ceremony and the VIP Suite for the party we offer a range of function rooms suitable for the occasion.

Surrounded by historic buildings, some from as early as 1831, Castlefield is the perfect place for a traditional winter wedding in Manchester – it blends cobbled streets and trendy bars seamlessly.
