How to register

Your registration fee helps us cover the cost of the event. 

There are two ways to register for Culture Crawl Manchester – pay a registration fee and fundraise or buy a ticket with no fundraising obligation.

  • Register and fundraise: £20 with a fundraising target of £80
  • Ticket only (no fundraising obligation): £60

Places are limited so register now! 


The money you raise is really important to allow us to continue supporting people with cancer. 

  • £60 pays for two hours of immediate advice and support for someone just diagnosed with cancer with a Cancer Support Specialist.
  • £80 pays for two 2-hour exercise sessions such as Yoga or Tai Chi for our centre visitors exploring ways to help build strength and confidence during cancer treatment and afterwards.

Stuck for fundraising ideas? Consider...

  • Getting rid of some of your unwanted things and having a car boot sale.
  • Going without and giving up something you would really miss, like sweets, cigarettes or alcohol and asking people to sponsor you for each day you manage.
  • Get baking and hold a bake sale at work.
