The Manc The Manc - 2nd June 2021

A new Manchester ‘doggy community’ is gathering this weekend as part of a free event at Angel Meadow designed to bring local pet owners together.

‘Ex-Paw’ is setting up shop on the green space near Old Mount Street this Saturday (June 5) – with organisers hosting a mini festival featuring attractions for humans and pooches alike.

The event will include guided dog walks, a mini dog show, a pet photoshoot, a Dogstacle course, and talks from pet experts during the day.

Ex-Paw is also partnering with many of the city-region’s pet brands – with some free goodies potentially up for grabs.

Business stalls and food & drink tables will be on site throughout the event.


Ex-Paw’s event description reads: “Bring your furry friend along for a fun filled day of doggy activities, meet fellow dog lovers and find new local pet products in Manchester.

“It’s going to be pawsitively amazing!”


Andrew Bradley-Nixon, sales and marketing director at event sponsors FEC, added: “Angel Meadow Park is Manchester city centre’s largest green space and events like Ex-Paw help to bring the local community back together after the time spent apart – with some fun in there for the four legged friends too.

“This is one of many events we’ve got planned this summer to help the community try something different and make good use of the park, including regular yoga and mindfulness sessions.”

Ex-Paw’s launch event will run from 11am – 4pm.
