My name's Josh. I'm a playwright, a History MA graduate - but most importantly, a proud Mancunian! I set up the original free tours of Manchester. We are now a small team of Mancunian guides who are incredibly proud of the experience we've crafted over the last 7 years, sharing Manchester's story with the world. @FreeTours_MCR
