Hear the stories behind the figures, creatures who decorate our streets, some obvious, some you may never have noticed. Tales of the talented artists and their worthy subjects, some masterpieces, some not so much. Tread those streets we’re all missing.
Welcome to Freshwalks City, and our brand new Virtual City collaboration with Emma Fox of Show Me Manchester, bringing the traditional physical experience to the comfort of your own home/office.
We'll meet (just before 12.30pm) in Manchester City Centre before taking a virtual walking tour around the city using Google Maps StreetView. We'll end the tour about an hour later where we invite you to hang around for Q&A while you enjoy some home-made lunch. Nearly like the real thing.
Show Me Manchester is led by Emma Fox, an official Manchester Green Badge Tour Guide and Associate of the Institute of Tour Guiding.
You will be sent a ZOOM link. The Online Technology we are using:
If you've not used Zoom before, you may want to sign in a little earlier just so you can download the app if needed and test your audio settings - but it's all quite straightforward.
You can join from a desktop, laptop, tablet, phone etc. If you’re using Zoom for the first time, you’ll need to allow it access to camera and microphone and we’re using the ‘call via internet audio’ feature.
BOOK NOW and Steve will send you a link to join via zoom. Easy peasy, lemon squeesy!
