Event description

Description

You think you know Manchester? Well, no one knows it like Ed Glinert who has spent 40 years unturning every last (Gothic) stone in the city, uncovering layer upon layer of other histories, lesser-known stories, the secret side of the city to create the ultimate “believe it or not”.

* Did you know there was a nuclear bunker under Piccadilly Gardens with a branch leading to the Town Hall?
* That L. S. Lowry was a secret sadist.
* Did you know there were race riots in the city during the Second World War thanks to an invading army.
* Do you think the pillar box that survived the 1996 IRA bomb is the one on Corporation Street?
* Did you know the council voted to demolish the Town Hall?
* Do you know how many secret service agents are in the Midland Hotel right now planting bugs?

It’s the Manchester that nobody knows...apart from Glinert and you after you've been on this tour!
