Manchester in Poetry and Prose Walking Tour
With Anne Beswick
Friday 13th Oct, 1pm - 2:30pm
Manchester is a rich mix of a city: sporting, musical, radical, gothic, working-class, aspiring, industrious, and never short of words. Writers have walked our streets and captured the frenetic spirit of the city and its people. Michael Symmons Roberts writes about taxi drivers, Jean Sprackland explores the canals, Howard Jacobson conjures the markets, Anthony Burgess writes about ‘foreigners’, Elizabeth Gaskell on the workers, and Neil White writes about murder and mayhem. Come and discover Manchester afresh through the eyes of its writers.
