The LRM (Loiterers Resistance Movement) is a Manchester based collective of artists and activists interested in psychogeography, public space and the hidden stories of the city.

We can’t agree on what psychogeography means but we all like plants growing out of the side of buildings, looking at things from new angles, radical history, drinking tea and getting lost; having fun and feeling like a tourist in your home town. Gentrification, advertising and blandness make us sad. We believe there is magic in the mancunian rain.

Our city is wonderful and made for more than shopping. We want to reclaim it for play and revolutionary fun….

On the first Sunday of every month we go for a wander of some sort and we also organise occasional festivals, exhibitions, shows, spectacles, silliness and other random shenanigans. Please come and join us; everyone is welcome.

Please accept our apologies for the rather shabby nature of the blog at the moment; I am in the process of making it lovelier but I keep getting distracted, I'd so much rather be on the street than staring at a screen. I promise it will be sorted soon. In the meantime if you fancy a blether or a beer or just want to find out about what loitering can do for you please get in touch:

We hope to see you playing out with us soon xx

First Sunday is Nigh

February marks the fifth birthday of first sundays! i'm a bit ambivalent about anniversaries but that does feel a bit special. thank you to everyone who contributes - past, present and future - to make our anarcho-flanuerie so wonderful. it is a pleasure to walk, talk, dream and drink with you all.

Having heeded calls for another expedition out of the city centre The LRM will be congregating this sunday at 2pm in Staylbridge buffet bar (aka the lovely old pub on the railway station platform).

We'll be wandering off by 2.30 but will return after exploring stalyvegas so don't panic if you've not had time for a pre-derive pint

trains from manchester piccadilly leave at 7mins past the hour and arrive at 24 minutes past. there are various buses as well. i'll meet you all in the bar as i'm not travelling from manchester

love morag xx

in march we will be back in manchester for something very special as part of the histories festival.... more details soon x
