We meet every Wednesday from 1.00pm to 3.00pm at Church House, 90 Deansgate, Manchester M3 2GP. (Please take the lift to the 3rd Floor.)
Our next trip is on Thursday, 21st February to Macclesfield. We will be leaving Manchester Piccadilly at 10.35am, and arriving at Macclesfield at 10.55am.
Macclesfield has been accused of having few cultural amenities; in 2004, research was published in The Times naming Macclesfield and its borough the most uncultured town in Britain, based on its lack of theatres, cinemas and other cultural facilities. But there is a Silk Museum and a number of art galleries to explore!
