MAY LECTURE - 'THE SCUTTLERS' BY ANDREW DAVIES:

Our new lecture on Wednesday 3rd of May 2017 promises to be a really interesting one. The talk will be given by Andrew Davies, and is entitled 'The Scuttlers', and is about a notorious 19th century Manchester gang. Their story was even made into a play which debuted at the Royal Exchange Theatre in the city back in 2015 (our thanks to them for permission to reproduce their image). As per usual the start time will be 7.30pm and admission is free, and refreshments and a raffle will also be available.
