URBANBUBBLE BECOME CORPORATE SPONSORS OF MIF
On February 5, 2015, urbanbubble proudly became corporate sponsors of the world’s only festival of original new work; Manchester International Festival (MIF). MIF15 has over 100 corporate and individuals supporting so far, with more still likely to support in the run up to the Festival.
“Once again, I am struck by the generosity of the businesses, individuals and organisations who support us, many of them from right here in Manchester…” Alex Poots, CEO & Artistic Director
MIF15 runs from 2 – 19 July with a programme full of world premieres, unique concerts and exclusive events from international musicians, performers and creatives. MIF15 will be the fifth festival and celebrates a decade of bringing the world’s best artists and collaborations to premiere in Manchester before touring internationally.
MIF is truly giving Manchester the arts and culture status that it deserves and is aiding in the boost of the city’s economy. It is widely recognised on the global arts scene, bringing thousands of visitors to the city every festival and transforming the city centre into a cultural hub.
Manchester takes pride in being a vibrant and creative city and with the return of 2013’s popular £12 tickets scheme MIF are encouraging Greater Manchester residents to engage with the Festival. The scheme has doubled for MIF15 seeing an increase to 10% of tickets for each commission, made available at £12 for those residents living on or below the national living wage.
Tickets for MIF15 were released for general sale on 6 March and MIF has already seen sales soar, including over 1,000 ticket purchases from sponsors during the priority booking that took place on 5 March. For tickets, visit the Manchester International Festival website: www.mif.co.uk
“…I envisage early finishes from work, drinks in the sun and lots of events to attend – we are all so pleased to be a part of this and can’t wait for July…” Michael Howard, MD & Owner of urbanbubble
