Two Festive Shows from A Helping of History

Christmas Special

The Helping of History Christmas Special will be on Christmas Day this year. On Tuesday 25th 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 Moston, Miles Platting, Cheetham Hill and Crumpsall over the years.

New Year Special

And then on New Year’s Day, 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 1940, and sharing stories of how the city dealt with the aftermath of the Manchester Blitz. What did the end of the 1940 look like to Mancunians?
