Radical Manchester - Free walking tour

 Saturday 21 March

10:45am-12:45pm 

Meeting Point - Manchester Piccadilly station.

We are delighted to announce a fantastic new addition to our 2015 TTIP conference programme: A free walking tour of radical Manchester

Radical Manchester

Join Steve Roman, an experienced local guide, for a guided walk round parts of the Manchester Peace and Social Justice Trail. The trail covers sites connected with the growth of Manchester as the world’s first industrial city and its importance as a centre for radical political activity, including Peterloo, the Free Trade Hall, the popular reform movement, Abraham Lincoln, the campaign against slavery, co-operation, Manchester Town Hall, Alan Turing and gay rights.

Meet outside the front of Manchester Piccadilly Station by the footbridge (look for the War on Want placard) at 10:45. The tour finishes at Methodist Central Hall, Oldham Street in time for lunch and the beginning of the conference.

Cost:The walk is free, but a donation to War on Want is suggested.

Email steve.roman [at] phonecoop.coop to book your free place

Please note this walking tour will overlap with War on Want AGM business (12-1pm). Therefore members attending the AGM should not join the walking tour.
