2018 Manchester Histories Festival launch

Join Manchester Histories on Thursday 16th November from 6-8pm for the official announcement of the 2018 Manchester Histories Festival and welcome our special guest for the evening Lemn Sissay.

Unique amongst histories festivals in the UK for working in collaborative partnerships with organisations, communities, individuals; the Greater-Manchester wide bi-annual festival returns for its 5th installment from 7-11 June 2018 with the theme protest, democracy and freedom of speech, and a new Festival format.

At the special event on Thursday 16 November; part of UK Parliament Week, alongside our special guest for the evening – poet, author and broadcaster Lemn Sissay MBE, Chancellor of the The University of Manchester, we are also excited that Manchester-based electronic music promoters, Annex Agency and Project 13 will give a taster of work they will be producing for Manchester Histories Festival 2018 when they present DJ’s Acre and Afrodeutsche . Poet, playwright and performer Louise Wallwein will perform; DJ, author and creative consultant to Manchester Histories, Dave Haslam will announce details of events to mark the 150th Anniversary of the formation of the TUC (Trades Union Congress) in Manchester and Salford in 1868 for Manchester Histories Festival 2018; and artist Lauren Sagar whose new work The March of the Artists is inspired by the 1817 March of the Blanketeers – when around 5,000 Lancashire weavers set off from Manchester to London to petition the Prince Regent over the desperate economic hardship faced by the textile industry in Lancashire. The Blanketeers formed part of a series of protests and calls for reform that culminated in the Peterloo massacre and the theatrical piece, The March of the Artists will form part of a whole day of debating in the 2018 Festival.

As well as more guests and special announcements, details will be given of how everyone can get involved in the Manchester Histories Festival 2018 – with applications open to submit events for Manchester Histories Festival 2018, Manchester Celebration & Fun Day, Manchester Central Library, and the Soapbox project at All Saints Park; a partnership between Manchester Histories and Manchester Metropolitan University.
