Tour One: Haunted Underworld - a Manchester ghost tour, 14/21 September, 1.30pm
Manchester’s premier ghost tour, delivering dark, dastardly and moving haunted tales based on fact and reality.
So what happens? In a dark and mysterious undercroft of the city centre old stories are coming alive.
Tales might include those of dead artists, sinister magicians, tragic lovers and body-snatchers. Expect the unexpected and also lots of laughs. People who are brave enough to come on the tour should try not to faint (something that happened recently).
“I would like to thank Jonathan Schofield for scaring the bejesus out of me on the Haunted Underworld tour last night.” Andrew Jackson, Import Manager.
Meet at the War Memorial in St Ann's Square, 10 minutes before your tour time.
Spooky underground Manchester
Tour Two: Uninteresting Objects - the unique tour,
Later the same day sees another Manchester Tour of Uninteresting Objects.
Jonathan Schofield, the Confidential editor, will be leading the tour through Spinningfields and over the river into Salford.
Of course what makes something uninterestingly interesting or not is the ultimate in subjectivity.
Yet it's a fertile subject.
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.
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.
The tour is on Saturday 21 September at 3.30pm. The area looked at this time is Spinningfields into Salford. Meet at Manchester Art Gallery at 3.30pm. Price £8. Pre-book here or just turn up.
