Augusts First Sunday

First Sunday This Sunday and a return to "normal" service after last months walk in a park. Heeding calls to explore Cheetham Hill Road and its environment we'll be meeting Sunday 4th August 2pm outside The Park Inn (early loiterers can admire our old friend The Irk; we wont be in the hotel). As ever everyone is welcome and its free because the streets should belong to everyone. The wander will be directed by whoever turns up and after a couple of hours we will stop and have a convivial chat.  ...

July 2019 First Sunday, a Walk in a Park

First Sunday This Sunday and as suggested we are going somewhere different.... Lets explore Heaton Park. We'll catch the first tram after 2pm from St Peters Square tram stop (it should be 14.11 if things are on time). It arrives at Heaton Park 23ish minutes later - so if you want to meet us at the Heaton Park metrolink please get there for 2.30. The unexpected element public transport always brings means it might be tricky to find us if you aren't at the tram stop on time so please try to be punctual ...

July First Sunday and King Street Festival

 First Sunday This Sunday and we're starting in a rather peculiar way... I'll be on the histories soapbox at the Kings St Festival at 2pm Sunday 2nd June (I think the stage is by Tast) where I'll be talking about Manchester psychogeographies, fights for access and public space plus some other interesting stuff about our city streets. Will probably also challenge the claim this is Manchester's most iconic and historic street.... Loiterers are encouraged to come along, listen and heckle as you wish. Ou...

March First Sunday

First Sunday this Sunday and so time for a wander.... I've had a few requests for one of our occasional weeknight loiters as a some folk struggle with Sundays. There's also been several suggestions to explore places we haven't been to before and so the two combine to create March's event. We will be venturing into the Arndale Centre chasm although as ever we will not be shopping (and depending on the spirit of the derive we may not stay under cover for long). Please join us 6pm, Wednesday 6th March outsid...
