By day they were Victorian gentlemen with sedentary lifestyles and smart boots. By night they were rabid radicals, roaming the streets with revolutionary fervour.
They were Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels.
We hope to get New Manchester Walks founder Ed Glinert to take this enthralling and exhilarating walk. Glinert, who once nearly joined a Trotskyite group so secret its members were obliged to communicate using only pseudonyms, will, if he’s fit enough, explain how two bourgeois Germans came to Manchester, created communism and changed the world.
Meet at 2pm, St Anns Church
