Sadler’s Yard Summer Jam returns with live music, street food and free jam!

A free to attend one-day festival at the heart of the NOMA neighbourhood, Sadler’s Yard Summer Jam will be hosting a day of live music, street food and lots more.

The event will be open to everyone from 12pm on Saturday 5th of August and will consist of 4 stages; main and acoustic stages on Sadler’s Yard, interactive workshops at PLANT NOMA, and DJs at The Pilcrow.

The day’s line-up promises a range of home-grown acts from across the North West, covering everything from spoken word and jazz to surf rock:

  • Main Stage – vinyl only DJ Ailsa McLaggan, Pasta Paul, Brunelle, Ry Vieira, Beach Skulls, Mancunian poet Tony Walsh and Hot Shorts.
  • Acoustic Stage – Claire Victoria, Jennifer Reid, Jess Kemp and Jack Conman.
  • PLANT NOMA – Free-wheeling throwing workshop with ceramicist Charlie Manthorp, interactive experimental gramophone session with artist Naomi Kashiwagi, and Noisy Toys upcycling workshop.
  • The Pilcrow – DJ sets from Better Days.

Food and drink certainly won’t be forgotten, with street food from Big Grillie Style, Que Delicia and Pietanic, plus community built pub The Pilcrow popping up an al-fresco bar with their modern seasonal beer.

On top of this, the first 300 people through the gate will receive a free sample of Manchester based Duerrs jam to make the day even sweeter.

Flanked by the city’s iconic CIS Tower and Victoria Station, Sadler’s Yard was named by the public as it opened in 2015, becoming the city’s newest public square since 1996. It’s since hosted a number of events, including street food markets and interactive Christmas workshops, and is home to The Pilcrow and new public workshop PLANT NOMA.
