Going underground at Hanging Bridge at Manchester Cathedral, Cathedral Quarter, 8 September 2016, from £11.01 - Book now

Meet beneath the medieval and partially buried Hanging Bridge in the café at Manchester Cathedral’s visitor centre for this talk by the University of Manchester’s Paul Dobraszczyk, an expert in modern urban ruins. Paul will be introducing you to some of the city’s secrets, hidden underground, from tunnels and canals to air raid shelters and even subterranean dwellings, and it promises to be a fascinating insight into what lies quietly below our feet every day.

This special event marks the launch of Global Undergrounds: Exploring Cities Within (Reaktion Books), co-edited by Dobraszczyk with fellow experts in the field Carlos López Galviz and Bradley L Garrett, and with a foreword by architectural writer and futurist Geoff Manaugh. The book, a visual feast, will be available to buy and the ticket price includes refreshments. Think urb ex for academics. You won’t even have to get your feet wet.
