24 Jul 2019

Organised by the LGBT Foundation, take a tour with Manchester writer Rosie Garland on Saturday, 27 July from 11:15am until 1:30pm

LGBT+ tour

Towering over Deansgate, The John Rylands Library is one of Manchester’s most iconic buildings.

Imposing? Yep. Daunting? Sure. Ever ventured inside? Think it’s not the place for ‘you’?

Come on this specially-designed tour organised by the LGBT Foundation with Manchester writer Rosie Garland. Nominated for the Polari Prize & winner of the Coop LGBT Novel of the Year, her latest book ‘The Night Brother’ has been described as ‘Orlando meets Jekyll & Hyde’.

Discover how she’s Queering the Rylands, using the collections to inspire her new novel. Find out about ghosts, and the woman who built the library. How we can write our queer stories into new spaces.

Join us and put a queer pin in the map of Manchester.
