In partnership with Manchester Flower Show, Selfridges Exchange Square will be hosting an exclusive takeover

In partnership with Manchester Flower Show, Selfridges Exchange Square will be hosting an exclusive takeover directly outside the store over the Queen’s Jubilee Weekend (2-5 June) between 10AM-7PM.

Bringing botanical beauty to life, Selfridges Exchange Square will host Manchester Flower Show’s main stage with live musical performances and cultural talks set to take place throughout the long weekend.

Beautiful blooms will decorate the square with specially designed floral installations, whilst visitors can enjoy the outdoor bar area where they will also be treated to a whole host of street food from Manchester’s burgeoning food scene, all curated by Eat Well MCR.

Hello Oriental, Manchester’s newest and most exciting street food dining concept will be offering delicious dishes from across East and South-East Asia. Hello Oriental is an extraordinary three-floor, subterranean complex situated in Manchester’s Circle Square, inspired by infamous Asian dining destinations such as London’s Bang Bang Oriental and 1800 Lucky in Miami.

Boasting an Asian inspired bakery and cafeì, a Vietnamese restaurant, and supermarket, visitors to Exchange Square will be treated to a Hong Kong Bakery style offering between 10am-12pm, then from 12-7pm the menu will switch to traditional Asian dishes such as Bao Buns & Bahn Mi’s.

For those who fancy something a little on the sweet side, Ginger’s Comfort Emporium will be stationed at the square with a selection of award-winning sorbets and dairy and vegan ice cream to refresh the palette. Known as “Manchester’s ice cream queen”, Ginger’s will be serving their traditional tempting flavours, plus two Jubilee specials to choose from – the Fig Leaf and Apple or the Cucumber, Gin and Rose.

Manchester’s Insta-famous Gooey, will also on hand to serve up irresistible cookies and doughnuts to visitors. As an independent bakery set up in March 2020, Gooey takes inspiration from across the pond with New York style chunky cookies and stuffed brioche doughnuts filled with a range of flavours.

Visitors can also expect to enjoy a host of entertainment as local artists and talent including harpist Ada Grace Francis, DJ collective Good Afternoon, vocalist Yemi Bolatiwa and multi-instrumentalist RunRemedy take the main stage. Families can also enjoy the Flower Show Kids Time in the morning followed a programme of flower show talks from the likes of the National Trust and Manchester Art Gallery.

As part of the collaboration with Manchester Flower Show, Selfridges will donate 20% of all proceedings from Hello Oriental and Gooey to support local CIC, Eat Well MCR. Operating across Greater Manchester, Eat Well MCR supports greater Manchester residents experiencing food inequalities.
