2024 will be an undoubtedly massive year.

The Best Events In Manchester This 2024

2024 is coming to set the standards high. This year, we're looking forward to some gigantic events that will have the city filled - we want to highlight them here so that you can hopefully be ahead of the curve and purchase any tickets before they sell out.

The AO Arena is home to some of the best concerts in the country, which is why the venue deserved its own spot in this entry. With the likes of Ne-Yo, Nickelback and The 1975 performing in 2024, there's lots to be excited about. 

CitySuites is only a walk away from the great arena, so if you're thinking about attending a concert during this time, consider a stay with us! CitySuites I and CitySuites II have plenty of availability in 2024.

Sports in Manchester 


Sports is ever expanding in Manchester, and in 2024, there's lots to be excited for. 

Home to the colossal and globally-known football teams MCFC and MUFC, the stage for sports in Manchester is going to be ever-expanding. From the fixtures for the UEFA Champions League, to the FA Cup in 2024, the city will be boasting an energy unmatched by any other. 

In addition to football, the city will also see other types of sporting events from marathons to sailing clubs - a spectacle not to be missed. 

New Venues 

New venues mean new things to look forward to. There are a couple of giant venues being built (or will officially open) in 2024, which are Co-op Live Arena and Factory International. 

Factory International initially hosted for MIF, but is fully opened with exciting events in 2024 - while Co-op Live Arena will officially open in April 2024 fitted with exciting live performances.
