Guided walk with Steve Bourne along the huge docks which once harboured the world’s ocean-going liners.
Gleaming museums of the modern age. A world famous canal, as deep as Suez, as powerful as the Panama.
Here a new city has risen; a city of glass, steel and burnished metal, bold and brilliant.
On one side of the water the silver shards of the Imperial War Museum North. On the other the Lowry Centre, a matchless theatre for the matchstick figure artist. And now they have been joined by Media City, northern home of the BBC. Alongside, stretches the water, filling the old Manchester Docks, cleaned and spruced for leisure and pleasure.
We explore the new city on the old canal, switching to and from the hi-tech world of today to the days when the Port of Manchester thrived as the 4th largest in the country.
This is perhaps the most visually splendid outdoors walk in the NMW canon. The thrill, the high of those deep, dark docks; those vast canyons of water and the histories they hide from the days when ships laden with tea chests, barrels of whiskey, rum and sugar, packed by stevedores in the New World, pulled up in Salford to be unloaded by the men of Ordsall, to be consumed by the hungry folk of the North-West. It was a feast of heavy labour transformed into today’s heritage heavy regenerated Quays.

This month we've got 2 speakers!
Here is a brief intro from Katie:
After Katie we have Glynn Bird from IBM Cloud Data Services to talk about Node.js Microservices. Glynn has previously talked about offline-first for us and we're think this is going to be another great talk!
Here's a brief intro from Glynn:
"Node.js makes it simple to build out your own Microservices infrastructure. Learn how to build simple, composable services using Node.js and Express and feed them with queues of work. We'll also have a peek at "serverless" architecture and orchestration."
Please note the group is intended for people looking to expand their knowledge in a recruiter free zone. Whilst interest from recruitment consultants is nice we have a no recruitment policy.
GeekUp Manchester is on the first Thursday of every odd month.
It’s a grass-roots knowledge sharing and networking social for folks involved or interested in all forms of technology and creative media.
This month we’re back at the English Lounge, in the Northern Quarter by the side of the Arndale Centre. Food will be available. Follow @mcrgeekup for any last minute updates.
