Sunday 16 June 2013
10:30 – 12:30 WALKING Tours
Start your day exploring Manchester’s radical and exciting history with a walking tour. There’s a selection of morning walks on offer (all approx 2 hours): Manchester Peace and Social Justice Trail (led by Steve Roman); Manchester Modernist Heroines Walk (led by Morag Rose); and Withington Activist Neighbourhood Walk (led by Alison Ronan. Involves chaperoned travel by bus to Withington and back, but it’s worth it!).
You’ll need to choose your walk when you register for the conference, and you can find more info on the walks here.
12:30- 13:30 Lunch (Own Arrangements)
Plenty of good places to eat in Manchester, plus hopefully you have some nice new friends to lunch with…
13:30- 15:30 Film Screening with Directors’ Q&A
After lunch, join us at the People’s History Museum for a special screening of Inside Film’s The Condition of the Working Class, a documentary film based on the book by Friedrich Engels, followed by a Q&A with the film’s directors.
15:30 End of Unofficial Histories weekend
It may be time to say goodbye, but not why not have a mooch around the People’s History Museum– the national centre for the collection, conservation, interpretation and study of material relating to the history of working people in Britain- before you head off…
