drinking in the city and a rare musical treat

Drinking in the City

Septembers First Sunday is a collaboration with Manchester Mule. This tour looks at the impact of alcohol on the streets, telling tales of Manchester's lost pubs, prohibition, moral panics, class struggles, casualties, criminals, romantic liaisons, famous raconteurs and comedy encounters facilitated by booze. Will end in a pub, of course! Starts Sunday September 2nd, 2pm at Piccadilly Gardens

We are looking for memories, myths, anecdotes and facts about your experience of Manchester’s pubs, past and present. These will be woven into the walk so please get in touch if you would like to contribute

Chris Mills Live at The Britons Protection Friday 9th September

Ok, this isn’t psychogeographic but it will be wonderful and I do hope lots of Loiterers can come; those who have been to previous gigs will know they are always very special.

I'm really excited as the wonderful Chris Mills from Brooklyn will be making a rare visit to Manchester to play an intimate show celebrating ten years of splendid songs. Support comes from the always excellent Liam Dullaghan and Quiet Loner. There will also be free cake and random delights as you would expect from The LRM. Tickets are just £5 in advance from or contact me to avoid a booking fee
