Manchester’s magnificent and multi-volumed municipal library re-opened in March 2014 after a multi-million pound refit and has proved an endless source of fascination to locals, visitors and tourists.

They will show you around this Romanesque revival masterpiece updated for the 21st century while revealing the surprising history of the various incarnations of this library (the first such library in Manchester was opened by Charles Dickens in 1852), outline the best stories of this building, show off fascinating pictures of the earlier Manchester libraries and explain who all the famous folk are on the top floor.

And a real treat at the end; we will espy some of the most remarkable artefacts from the collection: priceless first editions and barely-believable rarities.

*Please check website for updated times and meeting points as they are subject to change*

 
It's a great way to enjoy the kind of in-depth conversation with someone you'd never have on a Friday or Saturday night
