Join us as we walk from central Manchester to the heart of Salford, passing landmarks of the two cities’ radical past and including stops at the People’s History Museum and the Working Class Movement Library, where curators will discuss significant elements of the collections. Along the way, Salford historian and journalist Tony Flynn will regale us with tales of Manchester and Salford’s history. Our journey culminates at renowned Salford drinking venue the Crescent, where everyone is invited to take part in a pub quiz centring on the two cities’ radical heritage.
