THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED.

No city in the world is more storied than this one. So why not spend a pleasant afternoon rambling through the streets of Manchester while you learn about its literary heritage? In this walking tour, expertly guided by Mancunian book lover Anne Beswick, you’ll hear about the many writers who have committed the metropolis to print, from our women of letters – Shelagh Delaney, Dodie Smith and Hilary Mantel – to our men – Anthony Burgess, Howard Jacobson and Walter Greenwood, among others. Come delve into the fascinating marginalia of the place that Benjamin Disraeli called ‘the most wonderful city of modern times.’

Meet outside The Midland.
