A Tour Of Uninteresting Objects: Castlefield, 28 June

The Editor To Take People On An Inconsequential Saturday Stroll Of Castlefield

Published on June 27th 2014.


A Tour Of Uninteresting Objects: Castlefield, 28 June
 

THIS Saturday sees the Manchester Tour of Uninteresting Objects - the picture above shows guests on a tour last month which crossed into Salford.

Jonathan Schofield - the editor of the contemporary, engaging and rewarding organ you're presently reading - will be leading the tour which this time takes in Castlefield and area with lots of the usual surprises.

Of course what makes something uninterestingly interesting or not is the ultimate in subjectivity. 

Yet it's a fertile subject.

The area looked at this time is Castlefield, Bridgewater Canals and includes troops of cavalry.  

The Tour of Uninteresting Objects concentrates on the often ignored elements that make a city. It reveals odd sculptures, mad details, washed up remnants, bits of things, the quirky residue of activity. 

Of course the tour doesn't ignore the big things that can't be ignored but it will surprise guests with the hidden gems of Manchester's fabulous city centre.

Manchester 1889. In the distance on the extreme right, near the canals and the church with the spire is where all the uninterest lies for this tour

Sometimes the uninteresting object in question might be tiny, sometimes it might be huge, it could be hidden or obvious. What is guaranteed is that the tour is different from any other taking place in the North at present.

At the end of the tour for those who want to hang around and chat we'll probably end up in a pub or bar. 

The tour is on Saturday 28 June at 3pm. The area looked at this time is Castlefield, Bridgewater Canals and includes troops of cavalry. Meet outside the Museum of Science and Industry. Price £8. Pre-book here or just turn up.

And now pictures of some objects which may or may not be uninteresting and which may or may not appear on the tour.
