Shameless Ibiza: Balearics Hit Manchester

It'll be sunshine on a rainy day in Britain's capital of precipitation on each of this bank holiday weekend's 4 days as Ibiza comes to town.
From May 1st to 4th you can
“Discover the Balearic Islands in Manchester - a bank holiday event presenting the best of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. The centre piece is a huge marquee in Albert Square, Manchester. Throughout the day and evening there will be music and entertainment on the stage, horse dressage in the arena, artisan demonstrations, food and drink sampling and a daily parade containing 110 people.”

 Lucky Mancs, currently basking in double digit temperatures which the press have been crowing about all week in their familiar 'it's hotter than Ibiza' style, will not only be able to get a bronzie, but they've also hijacked one of our top musicians, Paco Fernandez, who'll be giving a concert there.

 All the details are on a special Discover the Balearics in Manchester site and if you needed any more persuasion to go here's a video I took of Paco in San Jose's Raco Verd bar.
