Saturday 23rd June 2018 - Manchester 

Manchester vies with Birmingham to be England’s Second City.  It has a large student population and a strong sporting tradition, particularly in football and cricket. Manchester has been important since Roman times, but became very powerful in the 18th century during the Industrial Revolution when it was the hub of the textile industry.  However, this industry was damaged in the late 19th century by cheap cotton from the USA and Europe. http://www.visitmanchester.com/manchester
