Event description

Description

• It’s what you’ve been waiting for: Ed Glinert and co. taking you or your group, club, works outfit, society around this magnificent building.
• This is just for the tour of Manchester's most famous hotel. If you'd like to book afternoon tea as well please book on a different eventbrite page.

***

The Midland is a Manchester institution.

• It’s where Rolls is believed to have met Royce, their meeting one of the great Manchester myths and mysteries.
• It’s where Churchill scoffed 16 oysters and a bottle of champagne – and that was before dinner.
• It’s where Hitler kept the bombing planes away from so that it could be the Nazis’ North-west home once they had invaded.
• It’s where George Harrison was refused admission because he wasn’t wearing a tie.
• It’s the famous Edwardian railway hotel built on the site of the house from where the magistrates sent the troops into the Peterloo Massacre, and the site of the concert hall where Chopin was slow-hand-clapped.
• It’s where the great and good – Derek Jacobi, Princess Anne, Martin O’Neill, Nigel Havers, Ed Miliband(!), Dave – stay when they come to Manchester.

Hear the history, soak in the sleek style and lounge in its luxurious locations. Then, when the tour’s over, take tea and tiffin or a tipple in the Octagon bar. What a great way of spending two hours or so!
