What's On

Father’s Day at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House

Join us for short talk from one of our volunteers ‘Through the Study Window’. This short talk will discuss what the Revd. William Gaskell (husband and father) would have seen from his window in the study at Plymouth Grove, and how that outlook changed during the Gaskells’ residency. Who were there neighbours and where did these people move to as Manchester pushed its way further into the suburbs?

All Dads will get a free cup* of the Elizabeth Gaskell’s House Blend Tea or filter coffee in the Tea Room.

Included in admission

*one cup per Dad.

Sun 17th Jun 1pm - 1.20pm
