We have a date for the Chetham’s & and Cathedral double tour

Good news.

We have a date for the double tour of Chetham’s and Manchester Cathedral.

This is a journey into the heart of mediaeval Manchester, examining these two ancient buildings in detail, unravelling their rich history, and explaining how this site came to be at the centre of the “Old Town” of Manchester, so dramatically derided by Friedrich Engels in his Condition of the Working Class in England.

Here are stories about vociferous vicars conducting 30 weddings a day, trembling Quakers, the mystic John Dee, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Wilfred Owen, Engels and Marx, and explanations of all that mind-boggling religious symbolism.
