Discover the History of NOMA's Neighbouring Areas
The Ragged School Movement made great contributions to the modern education system in Britain and led to free education for all children. Adjacent to NOMA is Manchester’s first industrial Ragged School and on Thursday 16th October there will be a talk given by local historian Simon Ward on ‘The Ragged Schools of Angel Meadow’. He will also be giving an interesting overview of the history of the wider Angel Meadows area.
Taking place at The Castle Hotel, 66 Oldham St, M4 1LE, and accompanied by refreshments, this evening will be a real eye-opener into the rich and varied history of NOMA’s neighbouring areas and the Charter St Ragged School.
