Come and see over 50 history and heritage organisations from Greater Manchester and the Northwest take over the historic Whitworth Hall. Find out about the organisations that celebrate, preserve, and explore Greater Manchester’s heritage. It will be a breathing testament to the incredible stories that have shaped and continue to shape the very essence of Greater Manchester and beyond.  

A map, with the stalls plan, will be available on the day.  

Also, catch and enjoy the acapella choir Golden Voices, a lively group of over 50s who have been together for many years with Choir Leader Rose Hodgson, sharing their common love of natural voice singing. Sets will include ‘Nana was a Suffragette’ by local singer/songwriter and co-founder/director of Manchester Community Choir Jules Gibb.

No need to book. Just come along.
