The Portico’s summer Quarterly is here!

Just in time for the arrival of T-shirt weather The Portico’s summer Quarterly is here, where you can find our upcoming events and exhibitions, and keep up-to-date with library news. This edition contains a fascinating article on Victorian literature and old age by member Alan Shelston, plus illuminating research on The Portico’s hidden heritage and treasures from members Alex Boswell and Nicola Higgins.  

You can also read about the re-launch of The Portico Prize 2019, and our upcoming exhibition Making the News which commemorates the bicentenary of the Peterloo Massacre. Artist Robel Temesgen will exhibit a brand new work for Manchester, created in collaboration with members of the Manchester Centre for Place Writing.
