Launched in 2003, we complement the aims and activities of the Manchester Centre for Regional History. With our regular presentations and talks, guided walks and visits, we offer a friendly and stimulating focus for people of all backgrounds who share a passion for research into their localities and region. The Friends’ regular informal meetings are held at the University’s campus on Oxford Road, Manchester, and we look forward to providing you with a warm welcome.

Membership for the Friends is completely free! All you need to do is drop us an email with your contact details and we will add you to the MCPHH mailing list. 

The Friends of the Manchester Centre for Regional History organise regular talks on various aspects of the region’s history. The talks take place monthly on Wednesdays at 6.30pm in room 307 of the Geoffrey Manton building (except during vacations).
