Shakespearean Garden - Platt Fields Park - Manchester
Be part of local history for this one-off clean up, makeover and mini festival. All in one day and in one of Manchester’s ‘hidden gems’ of greenspace.
We’ve begun a massive £15k makeover of The Shakespearean Gardens in Platt Fields. After recently winning a large pocket park funding bid from central government and a collab with Bulmers we’ve already begun the makeover for this pocket park. Now the real fun begins as we take things to the next level and ‘WE NEED YOU’ to help us turn this forgotten space back into a cherished beauty spot that Mancunians can be proud of.
On the day you’ll be given tasks to complete like:
- Orchardy & horticultural tasks
- Gate Painting
- Grass Edge Tidying
- Border Planting
- Moving Bushes
- Installing Fruit Training Wires
- Raised Bed Building
- Putting Up signage.
Flexibility to take on any task and a willingness to be filmed is key.
Setup from: 10am
Gardening Ends: 4pm
Festival Setup: 4-5pm

We’d love you to come to the whole day but if you can only make it for the gardening slot 10-4pm that’s fine. Same goes if you can only make it to the festival section (5-7PM) of our day.
SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE
Bulmers are bringing along a very special guest to be part of the makeover day. We can’t reveal who this ‘mysterious’ person is until the day but we’ll be sure to have a lot of fun along the way and the day will end with a mini festival with live music and of course a glass of ice-cold Bulmers.
Ts & Cs:
Due to the filming with Bulmers we are unable to have anyone on site under the age of 25.
