We are delighted to once again be a part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science.


From Saturday 22nd October – Sunday 13th November 2022 we will be showcasing some of the spectacular research conducted across the social sciences here at the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, and the University of Salford.

The theme of this year’s Festival is ‘My Local Area’. 

Events will take place both in-person and online and we truly hope that there will be something for everyone in the line up we have created.
