Event description
Boho Manchester, cool Manchester, modish Manchester, funky but chic Manchester.

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, like Abel Heywood, L. S. Lowry and Emmeline Pankhurst.

Join the hardest-working tour and historian in Manchester, Ed Glinert, who was once Boho, cool and modish, but never funky nor chic in this in-depth trawl and trail through the land that the developers forgot.

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