Event description
Boho Manchester, cool Manchester, modish Manchester, funky but chic Manchester. Join the equally boho, cool, modish Ed Glinert on this tour.

About this event

It’s the Northern Quarter, the ’hood east of Piccadilly Gardens. A land of crumbling cotton factories, sky-scraping fire-escapes, Bohemian bars, downhome hidden spaces, cult markets, chic galleries and cardamom-scented, sizzingly-cheap curry cafes; a style haven shaped in marble, steel and beechwood, with streets named in Mediterranean tiles and pavements slabbed in mosaic.

There’s even a great history of political turmoil, a stretch of the last remaining back-to-back houses in Manchester, and testaments to the great figures who have walked its streets: Abel Heywood, L. S. Lowry and Emmeline Pankhurst.

Join the hardest-working tour guide and historian in Manchester, Ed Glinert, who was once Boho, cool and modish, funky but chic in this in-depth trawl and trail through the land that the destructive developers forgot.

It’s old Manchester renewed and new Manchester refreshed. It’s good. It’s modern.
