an historical weekend

one of the things i love most about loitering en masse and psychogeography in general is its ephemeral nature and the flotsam and jetsam of the city floating by...

but still it's good to document that we were here (something i have been very lax at) so i'd like to encourage particpants to bring cameras and pencils and film making devices if you wish to create something permenant as well as memories. If you do have any recollections or memoriabila from past derives - or gather any during get lost - please do get in touch and share them with us.

lots of inspriring stuff going on this weekend (more details on all of them in previous posts)

Tonight (Friday 6th June) - 5.30pm - Piccadilly Gardens. Urban (Col)laboratory present their findings on manchester in a performance lecture

Tomorrow (Saturday 7th June) - 11am - The Royal Exchange Theatre The Cadaceus Walk; the mysterious Pegasus reveals the city's occult history as revealed through it's architecture. A special prize will be awarded by me for the best picture taken on this walk, as I won't be there and want to experience it vicariously

Sunday 8th June- 1pm -Outside the Crown and Kettle Great Ancoats Street - Dirty Old Town: A history tour with a difference through the streets of Ancoats

There's also the Anarchist Book Fair on Saturday and the fabulous Feast in Platt Fields Park at various times all weekend. Oh and summat about reclaiming Hulme Park this afternoon.

It's also a special weekend becuase two rather ace folk who bring magic, wisdom, joy (and a charming family) to the LRM and indeed the world in general are getting married. I'm glad to call them friends and fellow loiterers. Much love, best wishes and glitter to Sara and Sean xx
