North Manchester FM: A Helping of History, Tuesday 17 October, 12-2pm

Join me on Tuesday at 12 on North Manchester FM for A Helping of History – my new local history show.

Last week’s show ended up being focused on parks (particularly Boggart Hole Clough and Heaton Park), so this week I’m going look at a different aspect of our area’s history: dyeworks. I’ll be talking Turkey Red, the Delaunays and the Borelles. If you’ve got a story or a memory about the Blackley and Crumpsall dyeworks, I’d love to hear from you! Text the studio on 07555 461066 or tweet me @HannahKateish.

Also on this week’s show, I’ll be reading Yesterday’s Papers, and you can play along with this week’s Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s buildings? This week, you can also enjoy the first installment of ‘The Heaton Park Mystery’, a baffling real-life mystery that took place in 1883.

Tune in on Tuesday at 12 on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
