Join and Support Us

“Congratulations... and thanks to the great city of Manchester for getting behind a programme like this in the way you do. I think it is an inspiring relationship between a city and the arts.” Kenneth Branagh at MIF13 Launch, February 2013

As a charity, Manchester International Festival relies on private support to help us commission the very best international artists to create new work, premiered here in Manchester and then shared with the world.

In the past 10 years, over a million people have enjoyed nearly 100 MIF commissions – whether in theatres and galleries, or schools or car parks.  We couldn’t have done this without you.

If you'd like to support us in doing even more, you can make a donation online today, via CAF Donate.

Or join us as a member, donor or sponsor to enjoy a range of benefits and special events, and help us continue creating unforgettable experiences for artists and audiences alike.
