The kings of of the international roots reggae soundclash return to delve into Manchester’s musical history.

Edward II invite you to experience the Manchester Broadsides being brought back to life. Produced in Manchester throughout the industrial revolution, the songs tell of hardship, politics, social justice and good times as experienced in the nineteenth century. Often a way of spreading news, promoting events, places or businesses or spreading a political or social message, these songs were designed to have a short shelf life and as such were printed on cheap paper and distributed at the markets around what is now the Northern Quarter.

The event will feature live performances, an exhibition, a talk, a film screening, good food and real ales.
