About this event

In this special livestreamed event, we will be returning to The Guardian’s Manchester roots, to shine a spotlight on different aspects of the city’s vibrant life: its radical history, its progressive politics and its world renowned music.

Observing how the city’s history continues to shape the way we think now, will be Guardian columnist and chair John Harris in conversation with Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester; Helen Pankhurst, great-granddaughter of suffragette Emmeline and granddaughter of Sylvia; Mark Fletcher, the CEO of Manchester Pride; Henrietta Smith-Rolla, also known as DJ and producer Afrodeutsche; and Tim Burgess, lead singer of The Charlatans. Guardian editor-in-chief Katharine Viner will also join our line-up to talk about The Guardian’s roots in Manchester.

In June, the 200th birthday celebrations will continue with Guardian Live hosting a specially programmed digital festival. Speakers include Naomi Klein, Ghetts, Gordon Brown, Arlo Parks and many more. Sign up to our newsletter for more announcements. Tickets on sale from Wednesday 28 April.
