This year we held our first Christmas event at the Rates Hall in Manchester Town Hall Extension. We had archive material including the Pantomime Collection from our Special Collections and a selection of Christmas cards from around the world from the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre. We also had Christmas themed craft, refreshments and the wonderful Manchester Community Choir. Take a look at the above video to see what we got up to and listen to the choir, including a moving tribute to Nelson Mandela.

We’d like to thank everyone who helped to make the afternoon such a great success.
