Autumn is undoubtedly the most jaw-droppingly gorgeous time of the year. With vibrant shades of red and orange surrounding us on all sides, and a crunching carpet of leaves constantly under our feet- many people will state that these months are actually their favourite in the seasonal calendar.

While we agree that it’s the most colourful season, autumn always comes with one major problem: it gets a little bit nippy outside. This means that you’re met with two choices- number one, you can lock yourself away in the comfort of your own home and wait for summer to return; number two, you can bust out the winter coat and brave the cold!

The team at Barca are in full support of option number 2, since the last thing you should do is let the colder weather impact on your social life. In fact, we’ve gone ahead and made a list of the top 3 things you can do this autumn to rebel against the cold!

  • Try Out Oktoberfest

Beer, beer and more beer- sound good? Yep, we thought so. Well, it’s time to break out the Lederhosen and German beer pumps, because Oktoberfest is returning to Albert Square for yet another season of jolly drinking. They’ll be taking over the area with an absolutely massive tent, offering awesome beers, live music and a range of delicious food.


Running from 18th-22nd October 2017- what more could you want from an autumnal weekend?


  • Season of Festivals

But it’s not all about eating and drinking in Manchester (which would by no means be a bad thing!), as we can all look forward to both the Literature and Science Festivals this autumn. The Literature Festival has become a staple of Manchester life in the past decade, as special events, book readings and signings take over the city for a couple of weeks.


As for the Science Festival, this has been created by the guys just over the road at the Museum of Science and Industry. Looking set to celebrate the history of science throughout Manchester, this is an event you don’t want to miss out on if you’ve ever had an interest in our scientific past!
