Manchester Histories Festival 2020 at Manchester Central Library, Manchester, 4–7 September 2020, free entry - Find Out More

Manchester Histories Festival returns this June with a characteristically dynamic weekend of free talks, guided walks, film screenings, activities and performances exploring the stories that have helped shape the city we know today.

The focus for the sixth edition of Manchester Histories Festival will be the 50th anniversary of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act (1970), a landmark piece of legislation that was pioneered by Lord Alf Morris (1928 – 2012).

Manchester is a city underpinned by an inspiring socialist past, of which we should be proud. Be sure to take full advantage of this invaluable opportunity to delve deeper into its many powerful histories.
