As we celebrate the first anniversary of the re-opening of Elizabeth Gaskell’s House I would like to pay a huge tribute to the many people who have worked so hard over the past year to make it such a great success.  Through the energy, dedication and commitment of so many people the house has quickly become one of Manchester’s most popular new visitor destinations and one that is unique amongst the city’s cultural attractions.  And thanks to our visitors too whose positive feedback, support and enthusiasm serves to spur us on to even greater achievements in our second year!

Tickets for 'Lip Service to Elizabeth Gaskell' have now sold out. (We do hope to have them back again).

We were thrilled to be featured on the BBC's Inside Out North West programme last night.

For those who missed the episode you can view it on BBC I-Player for 6 more days.

The programme included an interview with Janet Allen, Chair of Manchester Historic Buildings Trust who are responsible for the amazing renovation of the house.
