Historical talks at Gorton Monastery with Ed Glinert

New Manchester Walks is proud to present a new series of illustrated historical talks at the world-famous Gorton Monastery.

What finer, grander setting could there be to hear Ed Glinert relate great stories about key historical figures and on exciting topical subjects…all presented with Powerpoint pics, wit, verve and vim?

After the talk, relax in the comfort of the Friars’ Pantry with a tasty morsel and something liquid.

The talks and tours (with Ed Glinert, except where stated) start at 12 noon and ideally should be pre-booked with the Monastery, 0161 223 3211.
