LGBT+ tour of The John Rylands Library

  • The John Rylands Library 150 Deansgate Manchester, England, M3 3EH United Kingdom (map)

Towering over Deansgate, The John Rylands Library is one of Manchester’s most iconic buildings.

Imposing? Yep. Daunting? Sure. Ever ventured inside? Think it’s not the place for ‘you’?

Come on this specially-designed tour with Manchester writer Rosie Garland. Nominated for the Polari Prize & winner of the Coop LGBT Novel of the Year, her latest book ‘The Night Brother’ has been described as ‘Orlando meets Jekyll & Hyde’.

Discover how she’s Queering the Rylands, using the collections to inspire her new novel. Find out about ghosts, and the woman who built the library. How we can write our queer stories into new spaces.

Join us and put a queer pin in the map of Manchester.

Here be dragons!
