Manchester Histories Festival 2022: History of Climate Change Opening Night

Wednesday 8th June

Join us for the launch of Manchester Histories Festival! Featuring a magnificent line up of speeches, performances and music.


Come and join us at the iconic Manchester Monastery, considered to be E. W. Pugin’s great architectural masterpiece and known as ‘Manchester’s Taj Mahal’. Meet the festival team, our volunteers and other festival goers to discover more about what’s on over the festival weekend and how you can get involved.

Our Opening Night will be launched by historian & broadcaster Michael Wood and will feature fantastic performances from young people who have responded creatively to climate change, as well as music from Manchester International Roots Orchestra.

Light refreshments and drinks will be served on the night.

We can’t wait to see you there!
