Chetham’s library tour

Are you free on Saturday 8th August? Join us for a free tour of the oldest public library in the English-speaking world, Chetham’s Library. The library retains its late medieval fittings – such as a bed slept in by Bonnie Prince Charlie himself – and the table where Marx and Engels devised The Communist Manifesto.

Our friends at Chetham’s have agreed to provide a tour for NLPN and will be covering the following: the history of the library, the projects the library is currently working on and the day-to-day working practices of the staff who work there. The tour will start at 12pm and will be finished by 2pm. There are only 20 places available so please let us know if you want to attend either by email or on our Facebook event.

The library is a short walk from Victoria train and Metrolink station (as shown in the map below), and about a 20 minute walk from Piccadilly train station. If you’re driving there is a multi-storey car park at the nearby Manchester Arena, the entrance to which is on Trinity Way. Entry to the Library is through the main gate on Long Millgate, just off Cathedral Gardens and we will be meeting outside at 11.50am.
