The Sun comes out in Manchester

An iconic exhibit at The Sun exhibition which also featured health issues
like the need for Vitamin D (bottom right).

Editorial Director Peter Stonham took the chance to get up-to-date on Manchester’s visitor offer on the day before the Northern Travel and Tourism show at the end of February.

Joining the city tour Secrets of Manchester run by Greatdays, he received much useful information from guide Ed Glinert and particularly enjoyed the stop at the Science and Industry Museum where he visited current exhibition The Sun – recently extended by popular demand. He also looked in at the daily demonstration of original 19th century cotton spinning machines in the Textiles Gallery. 

Later in the day, he joined an evening presentation by Ed Glinert about Manchester’s musical heritage, including audio clips. Ed provides an excellent insight into Manchester which Peter would recommend to groups.
