Manchester is served by several brilliant cultural listings websites, but many of them publish for an audience of cultural visitors into the city. There wasn’t a website for local residents to discover activities happening in their own neighbourhood. Manchester City Council was looking for a partner to solve this problem – and we jumped at the chance.
Together with our web-build friends at Oh Digital, we created a new site – Loads to Do. It’s built upon the CultureHosts online listings platform, so it’s easy for partners to upload their content. Simple and straight-forward filters make it easy for Loads to Do visitors to find out what’s happening on their doorstep, or in any of the 32 wards that make up the city of Manchester.
We all know Manchester is the best city in the universe to visit and hang out in, and whether you live here or are just passing through, 'Loads to Do' is the one-stop shop you've been waiting for. Opening up a world of possibilities and new experiences to people as they browse the ever-changing listings, the website is for anyone and everyone, young or old, who has time on their hands and is looking for something to do in our amazing and welcoming city.”
