A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Area: Greater Manchester

'Exists to further the study of the Altrincham area and to enable such research to be communicated to the public. Members enjoy a series of talks through the year, with occasional visits, and are encouraged to become active in researching topics related to the history of the area.'

'Members can attend any Branch or Society Meeting free of charge ... All of our Branches organise monthly meetings at which both in-house and invited speakers talk on topics which will be of interest to Branch members. Admission is free to members, a small charge is payable by non-members.'

'University events take place throughout the year, from educational showpieces, such as our Star Lectures, to public lectures, national tours and one-off exhibitions.'

'Working people have always struggled to get their voices heard. The Working Class Movement Library is a treasure trove with records of over 200 years of organising and campaigning by ordinary men and women ... We’re a living collection, growing all the time with fascinating donations from campaigners, activist groups and unions ... Our online talks are uploaded each week onto our YouTube channel so you can watch them at your leisure if you can’t catch them live. There are also films of work we have done with young people over the years to help bring our collection to life.'
