Manchester Histories Announcement March 18th 2020.

Dear Friends,

After consulting with our many partners, staff, artists, steering group and following the Government's statement regarding COVID19, it is with great sadness that we will have to postpone Manchester Histories Festival 2020 until autumn 2020.

Potential new dates will be 4 - 7th September 2020, all being well.

The health and well-being of the people we work with and our audiences are paramount.


We are very sorry for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause.

We will continue to post further updates regarding our year long programme and Manchester Histories Festival over the next couple of months.

Manchester Histories send love and strength to all our communities at this difficult time. Please contact us at info@manchesterhistoires.co.uk if you want to ask any questions or need any support.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
