Guided walk: Manchester peace and justice trail
Event code: X358
Tue 23 July, 14:00–16:30 ▪ Walk starts by the giant pebble on Barbirolli Square outside Bridgewater Hall

This walk will cover sites connected to the growth of Manchester as the world’s first industrial city and its importance as a centre for radical political activity, addressing themes including the popular reform movement, slavery, religious tolerance, migration, and gay rights.  Locations will include Peterloo, the former Free Trade Hall, Manchester Town Hall, the Abraham Lincoln statue, historic libraries, the Hidden Gem and sites associated with Alan Turing. 

The walk is led by Steve Roman, a trustee of The Victorian Society. He helped to create the Manchester Peace and Social Justice Trail, linking his Manchester cultural identity and his lay interests in history, politics and architecture with his campaigning on issues of peace and social justice. 

There is no charge for this walk. Numbers will be limited to 30 people per walk, so please register in advance. You can do this at any time before the Congress by emailing tours@ichstm2013.com with your details; or you can sign up in person at the Congress Events Desk.

The walk starts outside the main entrance of the Bridgewater Hall on Barbirolli Square. Please arrange your own travel to the start point.
