Come and see Phil describe the best of those, and also give his thoughts on the current Manchester Architectural scene, reflecting upon his Mancunian heritage.

As we have had to change venues for this first event from the Anthony Burgess Foundation to 53Two in the City, there will be a small charge for the lecture to recover some of the costs.

I really hope that you can come and join us for what promises to be a fantastic evening.

Doors open at 6pm for a 6 30pm start
