Secret of Afflecks Tour at Afflecks, Manchester, 1 June 2019, from £10 - Book now

Exclusively in May one of the cities retail landmarks opens its doors for a new secrets of Afflecks tour.

Nothing defines the character of the Northern Quarter quite like Afflecks Palace. You can easily lose yourself in the labyrinth of shops that present a real cross section of society. We’re so lucky to have somewhere in the heart of our city where you can buy anything from specialist beads and vegan soap to the odd tattoo and collectable playing cards. It’s therefore no surprise that this melting pot of passions has a backstory equally as interesting as its contents.

Join Johnathan Schofield in the new Secrets of Afflecks tour to discover the building’s origins, as well as learning about the area of the Northern Quarter in which Afflecks is located. Along the way you’ll hear stories of independent Mancunian workers from the 19th Century and maybe discover some street art that you’ve previously been blind to. Once inside, you’ll get to explore areas which are usually closed to the public and really get into the bones of the place. Be prepared to see a different side to this cultural retail landmark that so wholeheartedly embodies the DIY spirit of being Mancunian.
