Do join us to kick off our brand new series of walks celebrating women. Please book online and pay to reserve your place £25 for one event or £50 for both - when you get to payment on the invoice page just pay 2 x £25 if you would like both events.

Guide: Emma Fox our local guide and Manchester resident
Walking Grade: 1 Goat as we explore Manchester at a leisurely pace on our Saturday Day walk. In the evening the film Suffragette as Manchester was where the Suffragette movement began and so it seems very apt to end the day with a private screening. This will be followed by the film Two Goats about women walking with both the Director and the Non Executive producer in attendance. An evening meal is included in the price and will be served at the mini cine.
Meeting Point : We offer this trip as a Saturday day walk starting at 11am outside the Ducie Street Warehouse and a film evening at 6pm at the Mini Cine, Ducie Street near to Piccadilly Station https://duciestreet.com/whats-on/

Two million people a year visit Manchester – one of England’s most visited northern cities. We decided it is time to include this cultural, fun, historic city in the WalkingWomen holiday Programme. We want to help women discover a side of places that is sometimes hidden – the side that showcases and celebrates the lives of women that have helped shape the space.
Manchester has women artists, actors, entrepreneurs, designers, writers, musicians, sportswomen and so much more. Our guide Emma Fox will guide you around her city to tell you stories whilst you walk. You will walk the urban streets as well as the green spaces of the city to see the variety that makes up Manchester.
You will also eat and drink in interesting places run by women and on Saturday night we have taken over a private cinema to watch a full length film plus a short film about women walking and have an evening meal together.
If you need a little fun and excitement for a March weekend this may be just the thing.
Itinerary may change depending on weather and at the discretion of the guide
