Manchester - Not just football

Manchester

When asked to define Manchester, most of us think first and foremost of footbal1. And not without some justification, as a brief glance at the Premier League shows. London just can't keep up. But what about culture? Manchester also more than holds its own in that department. A great deal has been achieved in recent years: the Whitworth Art Gallery (whitworth.manchester.ac. uk) has already been voted British Museum of the Year once, and become a magnet for the public since reopening a few years ago. HOME (homemcr.org) is the name of a new cultural centre including theatres, cinemas and galleries. The Lowry cultural centre (thelowry.com) and Imperial War Museum (iwm.org.uk) are also wel1 worth seeing, while the Museum of Science and lndustry (msimanchester.org.uk), built around the world's first-ever railway station, tells how Manchester made history as an economic, industrial and scientific centre.

Manchester is a city of half a million people in the North West of England. The Greater Manchester metropolitan area, which includes Salford and nine sizeable towns, is often considered the second city of the UK.

Manchester has a thriving creative economy. The television company Granada has been headquartered in the city since its foundation in 1956. The world’s longest running TV soap opera, Coronation Street, is filmed at the Granada Studios in Salford’s MediaCityUK.

Over the last 40 years, Manchester has produced a wealth of musical talent, including 10CC, The Smiths, Oasis and The Chemical Brothers. As home to both the Royal Northern College of Music and the world-renowned Chetham’s School, the city is also extremely influential in the world of classical music.

Manchester’s fashionable Northern Quarter has a dense concentration of creative businesses including video production, marketing and design companies.
