VIDEO: Feature Capturing the Essence of the Northern Quarter Gone Viral

Viral video of the NQ...

A Manchester videographer has captured a rare sun-drenched Northern Quarter in all its glory in an online feature video.

“Manchester’s a great city.”

Shot over two days, The Quarter shows the trendy area of town over a two-day period and is the brainchild of Salford University graduate Charlie Watts.

Already attracted more than 2,500 plays, since it was uploaded in June, the super-stylish three-minute video shows the hustle and bustle of a sunny Northern Quarter.

“This is a tribute to my favourite part of the great city that is Manchester” says Charlie from Stockport.

“The Northern Quarter is somewhere I feel really at home. I love how, in such a small area, it encapsulates such a diverse group of people. It’s got a lot to offer and I think its a great place for urban creativity and culture to express itself.”

Charlie’s work is available to view on his tumblr page.
