I’ve made my way around a lot of Great British Cities in the last couple of months and now I’ve got Manchester to add to the list. After visiting a place and snapping some photos I’ve got into the habit of uploading them here and labeling them as my “adventures”. I can only kinda do the same for Manchester. I didn’t actually take any photos of Manchester.
So I drove up with three friends from London in my trusty Skoda last Sunday for Labour Party Conference. Despite getting off to an appalling start and scraping my front bumper whilst reversing out of my parents’ drive, the journey was fine and we got to Manchester in good time and in one piece.
It was my first Conference and once there I quickly learned the tricks of the trade. Go to exciting fringe events, don’t feel bad about taking free wine and don’t be nervous talking to anyone — and look confident, ’cause confidence gets you into just about anywhere.
Whilst we explored the pubs around the conference center, we didn’t really go much further than that, hence my difficulty in putting together this post about Manchester. What I did see of the city was very nice, though. Lots of culture and I’m gonna have to go back.
On the last day of Conference we shamelessly got pictures with everyone and anyone. Below are those pictures. Thanks Manchester, let’s do it again sometime.
