Manchester International Festival commissions the very best international artists to create new work, premiered here in Manchester and then shared with the world.

Two thirds of MIF's running costs are raised from donations, sponsorship, co-commissioning and ticket sales.  As a registered charity, MIF has benefited from the generous support of sponsors and donors, and has developed a range of options for both companies and individual givers.

By supporting MIF you could be a real part of our success, helping us to continue creating unforgettable experiences for audiences and artists alike, as well as enjoying exclusive benefits to enhance your Festival experience.
