About this Event: Join us to commemorate the 200th birthday of the remarkable politico and phenomenal writer Friedrich Engels. Saturday 28th November marks the 200th birthday of one of the greatest writers, best-known political activists and most formidable figures in Manchester history: Friedrich Engels. Yes, the creator of communism spent the best part of twenty-five years of his life working as a cotton spinner and merchant in Manchester and Salford, keeping his campaigning activities a secret to safeguard his job and so that he could rake in the postal orders and ride with the Cheshire Hunt. But away from Manchester Engels and his better-known sidekick, Karl Marx, were doing their best to create a new philosophy that would do away with the hated capitalism system of the bosses and the money men. Join Ed Glinert, who was once a member of a Trotskyite cell in Hulme that was so secret all the members had pseudonyms, although he can’t remember what his was, on this entertaining, enthralling, wild and witty Zoom tour-talk which details Engels’s and Marx’s sojourns not just in Manchester but in London and on the continent as well. This Zoom has already been road-tested on student groups but it’s the first time we’ve presented it commercially. Zoomers of the world unite!
