Manchester children’s charity Wood Street Mission has been helping children living in poverty since Victorian times. This exhibition looks at our work over the years from “rescuing” street children in the 19th Century, sending tens of thousands to the seaside in the twentieth and running a city gym in the 1980s.

The Exhibition is accompanied by a specially commissioned historic walk in central Manchester and launch of a one-off ‘Wood Street’ traditional bitter courtesy of Manchester brewery, Marble Brewery.

Queues, Clogs and Redemption is a free exhibition which runs from Wednesday 9 September until Friday 9 October in our historic building at 26 Wood Street, M3 3EF.
