The Manchester 8s (M8s) is a 3 day Lacrosse & Music Festival. The Festival will be held at the Broughton Park sports complex, which is situated by the Hough End playing fields, approximately 10 minutes drive from the heart of Manchester city centre.
The festival is spread over 3 days and Lax fans can look forward to playing and partying all weekend. On the pitch there are various lacrosse tournaments for both men and women, off the pitch you can soak in the atmosphere by walking around the trade village or making some shapes in one of the party marquees.
Camping is certainly the best way to experience the festival. The campsite is situated on the festival site and next to the car park, so you don’t have to drag your bags 50 miles! 24hr Security, lighting and washing facilities are all on site, so you can relax and enjoy a comfortable weekend.
Bthere Events are the organisers of the festival and we are very thankful to have the support and guidance from a number of individuals within the Lacrosse community to help us with planning and delivery of the event, most notably the team at Northern Soul Lacrosse.
The Manchester 8s Festival runs alongside the Manchester 7s which is a rugby festival. Both sports have full access to all the festival facilities, entertainment and campsite.
