We are so proud of the towns and cities in which we work and love to celebrate them. This month, we focus on the rich tapestry of history that is MANCHESTER. Here are a few fascinating facts about the region:
ONE: Manchester played host to BM’s biggest party!
In 2019, we held our 100th birthday bash at the National Football Museum, raising 10,000 for the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity.
TWO: “It’s home to the longest running TV soap opera”
Manchester is home to the world’s longest running TV soap opera – Coronation Street. Starting on December 9th 1960, it has been on screens every week, ever since.
THREE: “The famous Manchester bee”
The Manchester Bee has bee-come a statement of regional pride for mancunians, originally symbolising the industrious nature of the city and its people.
FOUR: “The fight for women’s rights”
There’s a reason Emmeline Pankhurst has a statue placed in St. Peter’s Square, as Manchester has a long history intertwined with the birth of feminism and is the place where the fight for women’s rights to vote began. Pankhurst founded the Women’s Social and Political Union in her home on Nelson Street in Manchester.
FIVE: “Mummy Studies”
Manchester is the only place in the world where you can study Mummy Studies. The university of Manchester even has its very own Mummy Tissue Bank. University of Manchester and Manchester Museum just so happen to also be one of our clients!
We have now settled back into our home at 53 King Street and are completely COVID safe. If you would like to meet with either Chris Pasquill, Partner or our Business Development Manager Jon McAlister to talk about the region and how we might work together, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time and we’ll ensure you get a real manc welcome!
