£3 all-day parking on the site of the old BBC Oxford Road. Central Library for coffee, audio books and Rae’s bedtime reading, Changos for lunch and the Art Gallery for some kids stuff.
This idea I like. To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo massacre (and the journey towards universal suffrage), change the name of Manchester Piccadilly to Manchester Peterloo. If the people of Manchester want it, it should happen.
Link to the Manchester City Council e-petition (for what it’s worth) here.
For my coffee, I want strong, smooth and quick. With tea, it’s slow and theatrical. Spoon on Barlow Moor Road does the job. White tea, pot of hot water, strainer and a tiny cup. The Spoon site is nice too.
Loved this exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery. All cut from paper, and they let you take pics too. Brill
