MCR Love Letters

Proud Mancunian's encouraged to show their love for Manchester this Valentine's.  Manchester Arndale is seeking the help of love-struck shoppers to create a giant ‘Love Letter to Manchester’ in the centre this Saturday and Sunday.


During the MCR LOVE LETTERS event, you’ll have the chance to take a polaroid selfie and write your message to Manchester on it, telling the world exactly why you fell in love with our great city.

Each picture will act as a building block for the homage to Manchester as it’s added to a giant digital screen in real time. You can also print off your polaroid to take home, as well as share it on social for the chance to win a £250 Manchester Arndale gift card.

Everyone taking part will receive an exclusive voucher to use in the centre up until Valentine’s Day, meaning you can treat the other love of your life to something special. Discounts up for grabs* include: 20% of at Victoria’s Secret and Victoria’s Secret PINK, 30% off at Bella Italia, £5 off at Blossom florist in Next, 15% off at The Fragrance Shop, and a £6 discount on Thorntons Pudding and Hearts Bundle.

Mancunian pride is unrivalled, whether it comes from people born and raised in the city, or from those who have adopted Manchester as their own. Being at the heart of the city, we see examples of this every day and wanted to do something a little different this Valentine’s to celebrate Manchester. We hope shoppers will have fun getting involved and look forward to seeing the love for our community come to life over the weekend.

David Allinson, Centre Director at Manchester Arndale

Don’t worry if you can’t get down to the centre, you can view the photos and messages here.

MCR LOVE LETTERS will take place in Exchange Court on Saturday 10 February (10am-7pm) and Sunday 11 February (11am-5pm).
