Join Saturday's free LGBT Heritage Trail guided walk

Have you ever noticed the small rainbow coloured mosaics set in the pavement here and there in Manchester City Centre? These pick out the landmarks on Manchester's LGBT Heritage Trail.

The route is  is ten years old this year and you can join trail guide Jon Atkin, this Saturday, to discover more about the city’s rich LGBT history and culture. 

Meet at City Library on Deansgate (next to Caffe Nero and opposite Spinningfields) on Saturday 2 February at 11am. The guided walk takes you through the city centre and includes the Gay Village area. It will last about an hour and a half.

Walk starts at: City Library
151 Deansgate
M3 3WD

The LGBT Heritage Train guided walk is part of Manchester Libraries' celebration of LGBT History Month. Other events include our LGBT quiz at Ikon Bar, a family-friendly design-a-poster workshop at the Museum of Science and Industry and a chance to hear Clare Summerskill talk about the lives of older lesbians and gay men from the 1940s onwards.

Check out the rest of our LGBT History month events. Our annual LGBT celebration offers a chance to learn more about the lives and stories of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans-gender people. We'll uncover hidden histories, take a look back in time, enjoy some stories and have a laugh too! All events are free and open to everyone.
