Join us for a socially distanced walking tour of Manchester
About this Event
Experience Manchester like never before with this NEW and unique walking tour from our community partner Invisible (Manchester) and their guide Andy.
About the tour:
In the 1980s, Andy and his pals fell in love with Manchester’s bustling nightlife and rock music scene. Today he guides you across the city taking the very same route of his night’s out in the 1980s, but this time reflecting on how the venues have played a significant role in shaping Manchester’s history
Each stop on the tour intelligently weaves elements of his memories, the story of that specific venue and how it is contextualised in Manchester’s history. He touches on music, the suffragettes, football, Peterloo, Little Ireland and art in Manchester. You will be amazed by the transformation of the city today as you glimpse into the past, perhaps even learn about some buildings that have vanished to make way for Manchester’s new skyline.
The great British pub is a hallmark of British society and culture, serving both positive and negative connotations. Please note, the tour discusses themes of drinking and alcohol but there is no drinking whilst on the tour. We hope that instead, the tour will help spread awareness about the links between alcoholism and homelessness – it is simultaneously ‘caused by’ and ‘a cause’ of homelessness.
Please note in order to stick to social distancing guidelines, tickets for this tour are limited. All money raised from ticket sales will go to Invisible (Manchester) and their guides.
