A Place in the sun live

manchester Central


A Place in the Sun Live Manchester took place on 5-6 March 2022. It was our first full-scale event in two years as a result of the pandemic, and we were back with a bang!

We welcomed more than 5,000 house hunters through the doors of Manchester Central, for the first A Place in the Sun Live exhibition of 2022!

It was so exciting to be back at this iconic venue, and it was incredible to see so many enthusiastic house hunters, many of whom had been waiting for two years to be able to attend an start making their dream of owning a property abroad a reality.

In addition to a diverse array of exhibitors, the stars of the A Place in the Sun TV show graced the event! Laura Hamilton, Jasmine Harman, and Jonnie Irwin took the stage to regale packed audiences with their experiences from the show, and to offer invaluable tips for successful house hunting and overseas property purchases. Laura and Jasmine also lent their insights to the panel discussion on ‘House hunting in France – top tips to make the right choice’ in the French Village. They also took the time to meet with visitors at the A Place in the Sun Help Desk for selfies and to sign Show Guides.


Saturday saw Jasmine joined by Neil and Jane, participants from a previous episode of the A Place in the Sun TV show who had undergone a screen test at A Place in the Sun Live in Manchester just a year prior. Their journey led them to acquire a property on the Costa Blanca, and they returned to Manchester Central to recount their experiences of the purchase process, working with the TV crew, and life after the cameras stopped rolling. Alongside conversations with our presenters, we featured a dynamic schedule of seminars across three stages, all weekend long! From insights on buying property in Spain, to plotting a permanent move abroad, and delving into Portuguese real estate, our visitors received a comprehensive education.

Our hosts were complemented by a panel of seasoned experts, including lawyers, tax advisors, currency specialists, and estate agents. They provided invaluable advice and fielded insightful live queries from our audience. Those with an eye on French properties were thoroughly spoiled for choice in the French Village, where a full roster of seminars covered all aspects of purchasing and relocating across the Channel. The approachable A Place in the Sun team were stationed at the Help Desk throughout the weekend, ready to assist with any inquiries. We’re now eagerly anticipating our 2024 events!
