About the event


Back by popular demand after last year's sell out tours. Book this one quickly as tickets won't hang around for long!

Do you know which church's parish hall in Prestwich appeared on the sleeve of classic 1980 Fall single ‘How I wrote Elastic Man’? Or which local pub features in the video for 'Wings'? Join The Fall fan Rob Carroll on a walking tour of The Fall's Prestwich to find out the answers. The tour will take in the sights and sounds of Mark E Smith's town and explain how he often wrote about the people and places right on his doorstep. We'll also be stopping off for some refreshments in a few of Mark's most important venues: pubs.

Meeting point: Prestwich tram stop. End point: Stanley Street, Cheetham Hill, but everyone's encouraged to return to Prestwich with the tour guide after the tour is finished. Please note tour participants will need to buy a tram ticket from Heaton Park to Queen's Road to complete the tour.
