Did industrial workers in Victorian Lancashire have time to participate in literary culture and leisure pursuits? From the Factory Acts to the First World War, this tour will explore archives that illuminate lively networks of poets and performers, humourists, authors, dramatists and theatregoers all belonging to Lancashire’s urban communities.
We are excited to welcome Professor Michael Sanders, Senior Lecturer in 19th Century Writing at The University of Manchester and academic lead for Workers’ Playtime, who will be guiding this in-depth tour.
This is a free, drop in tour at The Rylands.
