Two Festive Shows from A Helping of History

Christmas Special

The Helping of History Christmas Special will be on Christmas Eve this year. On Tuesday 24th December, 12-2pm, I’ll be sharing some special memories of North Manchester’s Christmases past. Tune in to hear about the festive season in Harpurhey, Blackley, Moston, Miles Platting, Cheetham Hill and Crumpsall over the years.

New Year Special

And then on New Year’s Eve, 12-2pm, tune in for a Yesterday’s Papers New Year Special. I’ll be looking at the local papers from the days between Christmas and New Year 1941, and sharing some of the stories and features. What did the end of 1941 look like to Mancunians?
