A last chance to see this popular show that uses archive film to look back at City's Maine Road years.
Dr Gary James, author and Manchester football historian, curates an evening of films about the history of Manchester City FC selected from footage preserved at the North West Film Archive. From the legendary Billy Meredith through to Maine Road's final match, amazing archive material is brought to life by Gary's unrivalled knowledge of City's history. Rare interviews with chairmen, managers and players combine with the sounds of the Kippax for this great show that returns as part of the Manchester Histories Festival for its final outing and includes some recently-discovered bonus footage. Don't miss out!
