Scuttlers at Royal Exchange Theatre


Inspired by the riots of 2011 and the stories of all the Manchester gangs between the nineteenth century and today, Rona Munro’s new play smashes the nineteenth century against a twenty first century sensibility to bring the young Scuttlers back to vivid, potent life.

  • Kim Hutson: Ordsall Hall in Salford is just a stone’s throw from Manchester City centre on the tram – a fantastic Tudor manor house hidden away between Media City and a housing estate. It’s free to get in and it’s only open 1pm-4pm on Sunday. There’s a really interesting tour of the building at 2pm (which is £2) – and they do really good coffee and cakes (and hot vimto!) – loads for kids to do too
