Event description

Description

• Come with us on the Rolls-Royce of tours as Ed Glinert and co. take you (or your group, club, works outfit, U3A society, Probus network) around this magnificent building.
• We will host you on a delicious afternoon tea followed by an eye-opening tour.
• To create this tour the guide, Ed Glinert, swotted up at the world's greatest library, the London Library, to peruse the biographies of the rich and famous and find stories about the hotel that no one has previously unearthed. Yes; original research.

• Tea: 2.30pm. Tour: 4pm.

***

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 three hours or so!
