Bowls & Big Bands

8 April 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

An online talk focusing on the events that have made Victoria Baths an important social and cultural space for the people of Manchester.

Third in a series of Hidden Histories, online talks presented by Victoria Baths’ staff and volunteers, do join us for:

Bowls and Big Bands

Victoria Baths has always been so much more than a swimming pool for its local community, hosting everything from dances to bowling in the boarded-over pools during the winter.

Join us to hear more about the joys of dancing the night away to Phil Moss and his band, amongst other notable acts to appear at the Baths.

Victoria Baths is now a unique space for entertainment, hosting all sorts of events, from cinema nights to beer festivals and the occasional dance. And we’re delighted to say that couples are still forming friendships and attachments at the Baths, as they have done for many years now, in some cases even going on to marry here

Event suitable for older children and adults.

You don’t need to book multiple tickets for multiple attendees, just book one for each screen you will be using.

  • One ticket per screen
  • 7pm – 8pm
  • Suggested minimum donation £5

Please be aware that the talk may be recorded for our archive.

We’re running this event on a ‘Pay what you Feel’ basis and suggest a minimum of £5 per ticket. Every donation helps to support Victoria Baths, who look after this beautiful building for the community of Manchester and beyond.

Victoria Baths Trust is a registered charity and relies on the support of the public to continue its efforts to fully restore the building.
