The City Talking
Issue 03 of The City Talking is out in Manchester now, and available in select stockists in the city centre.
This is our first A-Z issue in Manchester. In Leeds, our A-Z issue has become a bit of a tradition; it’s a chance to fill our pages with as many stories, hopes, dreams and memories as we can. Every year we speak to friends, acquaintances and strangers who we hope will become friends.
The A-Z issue always begins with a question, and this year in Manchester there were two. We wanted to know what people in Manchester had enjoyed this past year — the events, individuals and moments that made their 2015 great. We also wanted to know what they were excited about — what 2016 had promised them. We asked everyone from baristas, writers and artists to CEOs and leaders of the city’s tech community. We hope to ask even more of you next year.
There are many lists and guides out there to tell you what’s exciting in Manchester; the A-Z issue is not one of them, but you’ll find things to be excited about in its pages. Our friends in this issue mentioned Manchester After Hours a few times, as well as Forward Manchester, more DIY art spaces, football matches, hot days in beer gardens and the continued growth of the city.
We’ve also included A-Z answers from Sheffield and Leeds. These cities, just a train ride away, are places you might already love and know — maybe you’ve made memories there too. All cities have stories, and these are friendly neighbours and interesting places to visit this year.
The City Talking: Manchester issue 03 is free and available in some of the places you already know and love — and some you might discover by reading.
