Sean

I grew up in the same suburbs as the band and have read extensively about the band and Morrissey in particular to make a tour that takes you to some key places around Manchester that feature in titles, lyrics and the band’s history. At aged 16 (clumsy and shy) I met Morrissey as he was buying cologne in a department local store and persuaded him to carry on with music after he told me of his intentions to give it all up-I realise now he may have been teasing me! I host a Smiths based radio/podcast...I'm attempting to do 70 epiodes; one for each original Smiths track! I have seen Morrissey in concert many times over the years. I will guide you around the city and it’s suburbs to make a memorable day.

Where you'll be

All of the destinations are public spaces and so there is no issue in terms of access. The only place that may be an issue for someone with a disability would be the Iron Bridge, but the person would be able to reach the bottom of the bridge from street level.
