Modernist Manchester walk
Event code: X390
Thu 25 July, 13:00–15:30 ▪ Walk starts at University Place

The Manchester Modernist Society will lead you through a short condensed history of Manchester – the Original Modern City.

Manchester is a city in constant flux and it has never been one to shy away from embracing new ideas and new technologies. On this short walk, Eddy Rhead of the Manchester Modernist Society will attempt to show how new ideas have shaped Manchester but also how Manchester has been at the forefront of shaping some ideas of its own. We will look at architecture and buildings from all periods, and see how Manchester has evolved from being the dirty, grimy fulcrum of the Industrial Revolution by passing through the ‘White Heat of Technology’ and beyond.

There is no charge for this walk. Numbers will be limited to 25 people, 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.
