There is never a dull day at MediaCityUK. Atmosphere is central to the MediaCityUK ethos and with a host of cultural and sporting attractions, cinemas, world class events, shopping, an abundance of bars and restaurants and a diversity of people living and working here - atmosphere is certainly something that is never lacking. MediaCityUK is Manchester's newest destination and we love working with our neighbours and business brands to bring innovative events and activities to our community.
