The Northern Quarter Pub Walk: Thursday 6 March

Funny, factual and boozy, take a tour of the pubs this Thursday, with the Confidential editor

The Northern Quarter Pub Walk: Thursday 6 March
 

THIS is the funniest, silliest tour in Manchester: a trawl through a compendium of city centre boozers.

The city’s drinking history is peopled by an array of eccentric individuals falling over, doing naughty things, making political protests and generally living it up.

It’s an interactive tour too, so whilst you enjoy your favourite tipple, be it real ale, mineral water or a single malt, the leader of the Pub Walk, Confidential editor and registered tour guide Jonathan Schofield, will regale you with a history of Mancunian drinking, past and present.

The city’s drinking history is peopled by an array of eccentric individuals falling over, doing naughty things, making political protests and generally living it up.

The tour also underlines how significant the pub has been in national and local history. And we also visit some classic Manchester boozers.

To finish off we conclude with a brief dipsomaniac quiz in which guests can win ‘interesting’ local prizes. This isn’t a Campaign for Real Ale 200 question three hour quiz involving questions such as the specific gravity of Old Scrote’s Dead Dog Ale from 1970 – but a silly and brief, eight question affair in which the quizmaster might cheat.

The tour lasts two hours and costs £8 per person (now, now, that doesn’t include your drinks of course). It takes place this Thursday 6 March at 6pm.

Meet outside Manchester Visitor Information Centre, Portland Street, City centre, M1 4BT 10 minutes before your tour time. You can book here or just turn up.
