Before we commence our new Season in September, we are looking back at the past year's events. On this occasion we are looking at one of our star events of the 2016/17 programme –  the lively discussion panel on the Arts in Manchester.

Shirley Baker: Women and Children; and Loitering Men


Although the Lit & Phil 2016/17 Season is approaching the end, we will still be informing members of our recommendations for events and exhibitions to visit across the city this summer before our lectures recommence in September. Here the Lit & Phil staff, Julie and Kathryn, write about their recommendation for the Shirley Baker photography exhibition 'Women and Children; and Loitering Men' at the Manchester Art Gallery.
