Through The Borehole

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

An online talk that looks at how the water that once filled the pools journeyed through Victoria Baths

Join us for the second of our Hidden Histories series, online talks lead by Victoria Baths’ staff and volunteers:

Through the Borehole

This talk will take you through the journey that water took through Victoria Baths, from borehole to the Pools, Turkish Baths, Laundry and Slipper Baths.

Find out more about the well the water originated from, the boilers, the calorifiers and the progress of water through the building in a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how it all worked.

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.
