Celebrating Mother’s Day 2017 in Manchester
20 March 2017
Mother’s Day will be celebrated this Sunday 26th of March. The tradition of Mother’s Day originated from a time when people visited their home church or 'mother church' on this day. Since then it has also become a day to celebrate the mothers of children and give them presents.
Nowadays Mother’s Day retains its tradition of celebrating the mothers in our lives, but for lots of people, without the religious ties. There are so many great ways to celebrate Mother’s Day in Manchester this year, below are some of our ideas to help your Mum feel extra loved.
You can take Mum to one of Manchester’s Fantastic Spas – most offer special packages for Mother’s Day on treatments, food or overnight stays. Spas based both in the city centre and further out towards Cheshire offer a wonderful day of relaxation and quality time spent with your wonderful mum. Both Visit Manchester and TripAdvisor have listed out some of the best spas in Manchester, whatever your budget.
To ensure your mum has the most special day, you could treat her to a delicious Afternoon Tea in one of the many hotels or cafes the city has to offer. AfternoonTea.co.uk has a great list of some of Manchester’s best offerings to enjoy with traditional tea or an extra special glass of champagne.
If you’re looking for something less traditional, Manchester’s Annual Gin Festival will be held between Friday 24th March and 2nd April in Victoria Baths. Or check out the Wonder Woman Exhibition running March 2nd – March 12th for a creative countdown to the 100-year anniversary of when women first won the right to vote.
