Another in the series of guided walks provided by newmanchesterwalks.com
This one explores the links between Manchester pubs and various socialist and progressive thinkers.
As usual, the walk will call at a couple of pubs along the way and we can enjoy a few drinks in the final place we visit.
£5 payable to the guide on the night.
From the newmanchesterwalks.com website:
"What ever happened to Leon Trotsky? Well he never came to Manchester, but Marx and Engels did, and “Orator” Hunt, Robert Owen, Richard Cobden, the Pankhursts too. We can follow in their footsteps to drink in riotous tales of left wing bravado.
But hurry along, for come the revolution one of the first things likely to be abolished is a good pint of ale. So until that time let’s drink to the carbonari, the compadres, communards and comrades."
