Spanish Open Day

17 September @ 11:30 am - 3:30 pm


Did you not get a chance to visit Spain this Summer? Do not worry, because on Saturday 17th of September, Spain comes to visit Manchester in the form of an Open Day at the little part of the city that is always Spanish: Deansgate’s Instituto Cervantes.


With free wine, paella, tango, flamenco, and salsa, plus the opportunity to win incredible prizes and exclusive discounts; a Hispanic day out to remember is guaranteed.


“Spain is the UK’s favourite holiday destination and, at Instituto Cervantes, we aim to make visits so much more memorable than just reviewing holiday photographs” explains Pedro Jesús Eusebio Cuesta,  Director of Instituto Cervantes Manchester. “We not only teach the language – in ten weeks we can teach you enough Spanish to enjoy conversations with the locals as well as book restaurants, hotels, and go shopping – but we give you an insight into the real Spain with traditions, customs, food, and drink.”


To help Mancunians get involved, every guest will get 10% off all language courses. Instituto Cervantes will also offer all sorts of workshops, games and activities to keep the youngsters entertained. There will be level tasters to test your Spanish, prizes of free courses, dance lessons and much more. It’s going to be a great party, and best of all, it is free!
