About Us



NORTH CITY NOMADS is a non profit making community organisation offering days out for older residents of North Manchester. We began operating in the spring of 2015, and our first coach trip was to Southport . We filled 6 coaches and just under 250 Nomads had a very enjoyable day in sunny Southport.

On 25th August we had our second outing, this time to Llandudno in North Wales. This time we organised 4 coaches and some 200 Nomads enjoyed yet another great day out. Our next outing  was planned for November, to the Christmas Market in Chester.

In 2016 we went to Blackpool and hired a club room for an afternoon of bingo and music and dancing. Our second outing in 2016 was to the Lake District, which was an outstanding success.

As of writing , we are planning our third trip, to Liverpool and our Fourth, to York Christmas Market.

 We now have over 600 members, evidencing that there is a massive demand for our service in North Manchester. We are already planning ahead for 2017, when we hope to be able to take many more people on great days out .

Our Policy is to keep ticket prices, whenever possible, at ,or below, £10.00 and we hope to keep these low prices for as long as possible.

The Southport trip cost only £8 and Llandudno only £10. To help us in this aim Northwards Housing have been very helpful in giving us ,in 2015,a grant of £200, and Manchester Fire and Rescue Service have gifted us £250.


NORTH CITY NOMADS is open to all people resident in North Manchester who are over 50 years old. So if you would like to come on a trip with us next year, please complete the form below, and we will get back to you with a registration form.

We arrange to have Wheelchair friendly coaches on our trips, this allows a limited number of Wheelchair users to remain in their wheelchairs throughout the trip. Other wheelchair users can store their wheelchairs in the luggage compartments. Wheelchair users and others who need carers can be reassured that their carers do not themselves need to be over 50 years old.

We, here at NORTH CITY NOMADS, look forward to receiving your applications to become a “Nomad” and inviting you for an exciting day out , and of course welcoming our existing Nomads back for many, many more fun days out.
