We are very happy to welcome back our old friend John Grindrod to Manchester.
"Ten years ago John Grindrod published Concretopia, his journey around the rebuilding of postwar Britain, telling the tale of everything from prefabs to high-rise estates, new towns to brutalist shopping centres, the Festival of Britain to corruption cases. Now, to celebrate a decade of Concretopia he's going to take us behind the scenes of writing and researching the book, and to look back on what has happened to our postwar landscape since then. Join John Grindrod and the modernist for a fun evening of stories, scandals and streets in the sky."
