Manchester Histories Festival
7th - 11th June 2018

Returning for its 5th edition from the 7-11 June, the 2018 Manchester Histories Festival offers a packed long-weekender of events.

2018 is a historically monumental year for Greater Manchester, as the place that gave birth to the suffragette movement and the Trades Union Congress, and these are placed at the forefront of this year's festival as we explore the themes of protest, democracy and freedom of speech.
