Book your place for Biggest event of the GM Mayoral Election


Communities across Greater Manchester will decide who takes office as the first ever Mayor for our region on 4th May 2017.

The new Mayor will lead on decisions which will significantly affect the lives and prospects of people across our communities.

The British Muslim Heritage Centre (BMHC) with faith institutions, schools, colleges, universities, trade union branches, housing associations, NGO’S and other community groups from across Greater Manchester is organising the biggest event of Greater Manchester’s first ever Mayoral election.  This major ticket only event will be held on Bank Holiday Monday, 1st May 2017, 2:00pm – 4:00pm.

Every organisation has been working over the last few months engaging and listening to their respective community groups to identify issues which communities feel should at the top of the new Mayor’s priority list. We have decided on our top 4 priority issues that we will be taking forward to the Mayoral Assembly.

These are:

1) Social Care

2) Hate Crime

3) Living Wage

4) Housing and Homelessness

On 1st May 2017 together with up to 2,000 citizens from across Greater Manchester you will have the opportunity to ask questions and witness each Mayoral candidate set out their views on these top priorities. We seek to establish a public and accountable relationship with whoever becomes our Mayor on a common good agenda.

We have booked the Lowry Theatre at Salford Quays for Greater Manchester’s first ever Mayoral Assembly.

Places are FREE to all affiliates and users of the BMHC.
