FAMOUS 21 THINGS IN MANCHESTER

Manchester is one of the most vibrant cities in the world, and it has this swagger and confidence that comes from the fact that it has been home to some of the finest advancements, inventions, and trends the world has ever seen.

If you have recently moved into student accommodation in Manchester keep an eye out for information about some of these amazing things that have come out of the city:

1. THE SUFFRAGETTE MOVEMENT

Think about how different the world is today than it was at the turn of the 20th The Suffragette movement was an important part in our social history, protesting and campaigning tirelessly for women to get the right to vote.

Leader of the Suffragette movement in the early 1900s was Emmeline Pankhurst, a Moss-Side born, Manchester native.


2. CORONATION STREET

Whether you like soap operas or not you cannot fail to be anything but impressed by the longest running show on TV.

Coronation Street is set and filmed in Manchester, and it’s given us famous characters like Ken and Dierdre, as well as inspirational Lancashire food such as Betty’s hot pot!


3. FACTORY RECORDS/THE HACIENDA

At various times Manchester has felt like the centre of the Universe, and the late-70s through to the early 90s was a time when it truly felt that way.

With Tony Wilson championing local bands, Factory Records putting them out to the wider world, and The Hacienda nightclub creating a whole new scene in dance music and ‘baggy’ culture happiness was all around and Manchester was inspiring the world.


4. THE MODERN BOYBAND

When you think about modern day pop music and the format of boy bands and girl bands that have been so consistently successful over the past 30 years, still the biggest draw is Take That.

The popularity surge in the early 90s that would become a phenomenon and change the way we looked at and consumed pop music in the UK was defined in Manchester.
