GLASS EXHIBITION

The Glory of Glass in Ancoats: A Hidden History | a thank you

We would like to thank everybody who helped in creating "The Glory of Glass in Ancoats" exhibition, our contribution to the Manchester Histories Festival 2016. The exhibition, which was extended due to popular demand, provided a unique insight into the little known yet thriving industry that flourished in Ancoats in the mid-19th century up to the late 1960s.

If you would like to find out more about the Ancoats glassworks, or discover what you could do with a big gob, watch our TV interview with a local Manchester station below.
