Step back in time with an Angel Meadow history tour
Hear about life in Victorian Manchester's most notorious slum in a new history walking tour starting in March 2024
Hope you’re all okay and have had a good start to the new year.
There’s no story this week but I wanted to let you know about a project I’ve started to kick off 2024.
I’ve had a few people asking on Facebook if I do tours of Angel Meadow, so I’ve decided to give it a go and have booked the first dates in March.
The tours last 90 minutes and I’m planning to keep the group sizes small while I get used to it — and that will give people time to ask lots of questions and take photographs as we walk along.
You will hear stories from my Angel Meadow book and will be introduced to some of the area's characters, as well as hearing about how our Mancunian ancestors lived and survived in the area.
One thing I hope to do, which will be different from other tours, is to personalise it a little bit so that if you have Angel Meadow ancestors and tell me about them beforehand, you’ll hear about them during the tour and, if possible, shown where they lived.
The first tour dates are:
Wednesday, 6 March, 11am. SOLD OUT
Saturday, 16 March, 11am. (St Patrick's weekend) SOLD OUT
Wednesday, 20 March, 11am. SOLD OUT
Saturday, 30 March, 11am. (Easter Saturday) SOLD OUT
Friday, 5 April, 11am. TICKETS AVAILABLE
Saturday, 13 April, 11am. TICKETS AVAILABLE

I hope you can make it if it's something you're interested in.
All being well, I'll be planning more dates soon. Please let me know in the comments if you have any questions and, if you can’t make it this time, subscribe to this newsletter to find out about upcoming events. If it’s something you think your friends might be interested in, please share it to help me get the word out.
In addition to these public tours, I'm also planning to offer private tours for groups —history societies, universities — and also for any families who want a more detailed, personalised research tour of where their ancestors lived.
If you are interested in a personalised tour, please email me at email@example.com for more details.
