Dolly Birds and Swinging Sixties, 19th May, 10am – 3pm

This event will consist of a one-day symposium to explore the impact of alleged new found freedoms for women in the 1960s.

Tickets for the symposium are £10 (free for concessions) and available from:

The symposium is followed by a walking tour around Manchester entitled Women and Pop Culture in Sixties Manchester. Tickets are £3 and available at:

Many thanks,
