Our Vision

At the Manchester Lit & Phil we are proud of our remarkable past. But our focus now is on the growth and diversity of our membership. We’ll be providing even more opportunities to learn together. So join us now. There’s lots to look forward to.

“New ideas, opinions, lively discussion – have they ever been more relevant than in today’s chaotic world? We offer a wealth of opportunities to learn together from the best in the business, to interrogate the issues of the day and challenge the old certainties.  And all with a welcoming smile on our faces!”

Ian Cameron, President

“You are very welcome to be a part of the Manchester Lit and Phil! We are aiming to grow to be the friendliest and most exciting place to exchange ideas and gain more knowledge about all the things you are interested in (and more!). Learning is often a dull experience, or a bit like hard work. Not at the Lit and Phil, where we enjoy sharing knowledge and socialising (including online!).”

Niall Power, Honorary Secretary
