Manchester Modern Buildings tour: 1 August, 4pm

Confidential editor, Jonathan Schofield on Saturday 1 August, will be leading an architectural tour looking at Manchester’s post 1900 buildings taking in classics such as the Daily Express Building, the CIS, the former NatWest on King Street, Kendals, City Tower and many diverse unregarded gems of Art Nouveau, Art Deco, International Modern and Brutalist architecture across the city centre. Along with the lovelies we’ll include some real shockers such as the one pictured in this panel. New architecture such as the Civil Justice Centre will be examined and we’ll worm our way into architects' brains to find out about the fashions that sway them hither and thither. We will finish in a Brutalist bar for drinks and chat.

Meet: 4pm, 1 August, Cafe Nero, Piccadilly Gardens. Tour lasts 1.5-2 hours. Price £5.
