Volunteer Tour Guide

5th May to 3rd May
Withington Baths would like to build a team of volunteer tour guides that would support us to share our story with our local communities and beyond.
This activity is brought to you by The Union in partnership with Manchester Community Central
Withington Baths is the last working Edwardian pool in Manchester. We've secured funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to bring our building back to its original splendor and to tell people about the building's history. One way of sharing the buildings unique story is to invite people on tours across our site, including behind the scenes. Through our tours we want to introduce people to the rich heritage of our building and its journey from Manchesters first pool to offer mixed bathing to its current form as a much loved community asset.
