The editor Jonathan Schofield is conducting a tour this Saturday. The tour will look at Manchester’s architecture - old and new, big and small, and visit some amazing interiors.
The tour won’t be about constructional methods and technical details but about the story behind the buildings, why they were built, the personalities of the architects and how Manchester’s street scene knits together. It will discuss successes and mistakes in a frank, opinionated, passionate and informed way.
The route will be a magical mystery tour mingling key buildings that are well-known and not so known. There might even be the odd laugh.
The price is £6 for adults and £5 for concessions. The tour starts at 3pm at Manchester Visitor Information Centre, Piccadilly Plaza, Portland Street, M1 4BT. Just turn up, or for further details call, 07876 235638.
