M20 5L Manchester, United Kingdom
Historian, broadcaster and story teller Michael Wood was ‘never bothered’ about his own family story, 'assuming it was too small to have any wider significance.’

In this illustrated talk, inspired by family tales of Welsh slate quarriers, Cumbrian farmers, Pennine craftsmen and Cheshire silk workers, Wood unfolds a story that ‘could be of any family, and any place,” sketching a people’s story of Manchester before and after the Industrial Revolution. From Peterloo to World Wars, this is history from the bottom up, with an extraordinary and unexpected tailpiece. The event will be accompanied by a showreel of iconic Manchester imagery by Didsbury photographer Craig Barker.
