Back to Town

As Manchester emerges from the shadows of lockdown, we’ll look back through history at times when the city had to overcome adversity.

A politically excluded town at the time of English Civil War that didn’t even have its own MP until 1832.

A derelict city of empty mills, factories and chimneys that adapted to a new economy after the fall of a once prosperous cotton empire.

A city that has faced terror but found hope.

A city that will soon fightback from this latest setback to rediscover its own unique brand of joie de vivre.

We’ll look back. We’ll look at what is happening. We’ll look forward.
