Cafe at the Rylands caters to the stars

Cafe at the Rylands, located in the John Rylands Library on Deansgate, played host to a number of well-known sports and television personalities as official hospitality venue for the Great City Games.

The cafe provided a VIP afternoon tea including assorted sandwiches, cream cakes and refreshments to the likes of Colin Jackson, Brendan Foster and Tina O’Brien. The Great City Games organisers have since contacted the team to thank them for the fantastic service the cafe provided and to enquire about availability for next year’s event.
