Event description

Description

In the seventeenth century Humphrey Chetham, a prosperous Manchester merchant, bought medieval buildings close to the Collegiate Church (now the Cathedral) to provide not only a school and accommodation for the education of forty poor but gifted boys, but also a free library for the use of scholars.
Today Chetham's Library is the oldest surviving public library in Britain where, during a visit to this fascinating building includes the reading room where Marx and Engels studied, the baronial hall and the chained library.

The tour is held in simplified German with English summaries as neccessary (suitable for learners of at least B1 level and native speakers)
