Date: 10/02/2021, Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This year, we’re delighted to have teamed up with our community partner Invisible (Manchester) again.

Invisible (Manchester) are a social enterprise who offer friendly walking tours of Manchester that showcase some of the city’s historical landmarks and explore the social projects that make the city what it is. The difference between Invisible (Manchester) and other tour operators is that all of their experienced tour guides have been affected by homelessness, and offer their own personal insight into the past, present and future of Manchester, delivering a tour like no other.

Like many others, COVID-19 has had a huge impact on Invisible (Manchester) and their guides, however, they have adapted and are now offering virtual tours, meaning you can explore the city and learn more about the amazing things that make Manchester great from the comfort of your own home.

During this event, you’ll go ‘off the cobbles’ with Danny and learn more about the great work Invisible (Manchester) do.

About the Tour

This unique walking tour is led by Danny, an “adopted Mancunian”, to show people the city’s streets as he has lived them. His tour is a thoughtful and poetic exploration that will transport you to the flip side of Manchester, beyond the mere surface of its tourist attractions and into the depths of his own experience of homelessness.

His passion is abundantly clear throughout the tour as he helps you see Manchester in a different light by contextualising some of the city’s most beautiful areas in the experience of Manchester’s homeless community, and his own personal experience. Each stop is marked with either a poignant poetry piece, written by Danny or an anecdote from his time on the streets.

The cost of non-member and JCI UK member tickets will go to Invisible (Manchester) to help them continue with the amazing work they are doing. If you are a member and would like to make a donation to Invisible (Manchester) to help them continue with the amazing work they do, then please do so here.
