After the success of the first two Joy Diversions, we’re running a third day on Saturday 1st September.

Often viewed as a functional place of work, retail and leisure, our city centre bounded by Trinity Way, Great Ancoats Street and the Mancunian Way is imbued with history, iniquity, celebration and endeavour. Let us go out and find what’s out there, discover the forgotten spaces, create stories and map our city.

Starting with maps of the city from over 150 years ago, we will propose expeditions to uncharted territories, revisits to previously explored places, strange meanderings and any other diversions that people fancy.

You can see a taster of what happened on the last Joy Diversion here.

Our last trip out was lovely. The sun was out and Manchester and Salford revealed a few of their many mysteries – so we are doing it again.

Calling all ramblers, explorers and meanderers. Surveyors, cartographers and inquisitors – people who look up to the rooftops and down into the culverts. Join us for an afternoon of mapping, exploring and wandering in Central Manchester and Salford.
