Home to grand relics of the industrial revolution, the modern city is also studded with independent boutiques and top-flight shops, cool bars and snug pubs. Not only do its museums house some of the UK’s finest historic collections, but also Manchester has a contemporary cultural pulse that puts other British cities to shame.” Editor Time Out Manchester THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION JANE DELFINO Jane Delfino, has been awarded with an Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for her work in education.
