Design Festival North is a creative networking and social event that takes place over three days at various showrooms in Manchester.

Presented in a series of events spread across Manchester showrooms as well as a 'Design Hub' created exclusively for the festival, the three-day programme exhibits the work of leading brands from across the north of England.

Curated events included in Design Festival North include product showcases – some of which are exclusive launches – as well as other activities such as a virtual reality experience and a Lego Building Competition.

The festival also presents a programme about workplace wellness, with free neck and head massages on offer, and an additional presentation by health and wellness specialist Maria Mander.

Information on the most up-to-date colour, wood, lighting, tile and paint trends will be available for visitors, as well as plenty of discussion about sustainability and technology in the design industry.

"Manchester has more creative businesses, designers and architects per square mile than any other northern city, truly making it the most important design hub in the north of England," said the event's team.

Dezeen is a media partner for Design Festival North.

Design Festival North takes place from 12 to 14 July 2022 at various showrooms across Manchester, as well as an exclusive 'Design Hub' at Castlefield Rooms, Dukes 92, 18-25 Castle Street, Manchester M3 4LZ, United Kingdom.
