Travel back in time with Manchester Pubs and Beer...

It's 1979, 40 years ago. The final section of the Arndale Centre had just opened, there were just three television channels, most pubs offered a choice of mild or bitter...all day pub opening was still a distant dream...

Camra's Good Beer Guide was in its sixth edition. Priced £2.35 the 1979 edition listed eight pubs in Manchester City Centre, plus a couple more just across into the nearest part of Salford.

Most of those 10 pubs are still thriving but sadly some are no longer with us. Join me with my 1979 GBG on this exploration back in time where we'll call at the pubs still standing, and mourn those that have passed, while calling at a nearby substitute.

Need to know:

This event is as much a guided walk as a traditional pub crawl. Please therefore be ready to move on to the next port of call together as a group. We will generally be walking between the different pubs but in a couple of cases will take a short bus ride using the free bus or regular bus. Again, please stick with the group.
