The Shrieking Violet

The Shrieking Violet is your free friendly guide to Manchester. It takes the reader on a whistle-stop tour through the city’s lesser-celebrated gems, explores its culture, art, history and infrastructure, stopping for a glimpse at canal boats and gargoyles along the way. It’s an insightful examination of all that makes Manchester what it is, and is filled with fun original features including a guide to gigging alone and a study of the football strip’s demise. As someone whose main experience of Manchester is staring at a clock on the platform of Oxford Road (please, never be tricked into using the vending machine there), The Shrieking Violet makes me feel I’ve got a lot of catching up to do.
