Last year saw 10,000 adventurous revellers put their best foot forward to try out traditional folk dancing, soak up the unique sounds of a zither orchestra and sample Transylvanian craft beer and delicacies including chimney cake and langos.

This year's free event, in the city's central Albert Square, promises a larger outdoor stage and extended programme, which will also shine a light on the culture and folklores of other ten other European countries, including Bulgaria, Turkey, Lithuania, Croatia, Hungary, Greece and Slovakia .

Due to the popularity of the food and drink stalls last year - and long queues - an even greater number have been invited. New additions will include a bar selling palinka, a traditional spirit drink from the Carpathian Basin region that can be anything up to 86% proof. Mancunians will also be able to sample mititei for the first time, a highly spiced and skinless sausage that is a BBQ favourite across Romania.
