Description

“The King said he’s gonna put a tax on tea/That’s why y’all Americans drink coffee.”

Which king? And what’s the link between him, America and Manchester? We will be walking in the footsteps of Joe Kennedy all the way to the Abe Lincoln statue, hearing Dylan and reminiscing about Jimi Hendrix and Paul Robeson, not to mention all that raw cotton – in Manchester, the 51st state for the day.

This walk, on 4 July, natch, is being run during the 2017 Manchester International Festival, highlighting the treasures and trails of Manchester UK (sic), the industrial strength city.
