Manchester of the mid-19th century wanted to show the world that it was more than just a forest of smokestack industries and belching chimneys by creating a city of culture; a metropolis where the arts and the glories of civilisation could flourish alongside commerce and manufacturing.

Success followed. Manchester became known for it's many theatres, concert halls, collections of paintings, fine architecture and love of creativity and ingenuity. The staging of the Great Art Treasures’ Exhibition in Old Trafford in 1857; Henry Irving at the Theatre Royal, Annie Horniman at the Gaiety Theatre; the Royal Manchester Institution gentlemen’s club transformed into Manchester Art Gallery; the revered speakers and members of the Manchester Literary and Philosophical Society; and most of all the progression of the local orchestra into one of the world’s finest – the Hallé.

We were due to make our first visit to this highly rated private hostel in 2020 but of course our plans were curtailed as were so many others.
This event has now gone live for June 2022 and is 60% full already.
If Chester was on your list of places to explore further and you fancy joining a great group of fun, sociable people to experience this great city then why not join us for this fabulous weekend away.
The member early bird price gives great value at £115 for 2 nights accommodation, 2 breakfasts and a Friday night buffet plus the services of a friendly Spice Host.

We are already looking forward to visiting the fabulous Conwy/Conway in North Wales on our forthcoming Spice Exclusive Hostel Weekend where we plan to kickstart out Christmas programme of events.
We have taken over the YHA and have lots of plans including a bit of festive crafting, carol singing, blue badge guided tours, secret Santa and of course dancing & eating with maybe a little bit of festive cheer too!
With 70 people already booked this great value weekend is bound to be a super event with your Spice friends.
If you are new to Spice or want to know more about getting out and meeting new, like-minded people from across the U.K. then please don't hesitate to give your local Spice office a call.
You'll have the opportunity to experience for yourself:
• Meeting like-minded people
• Making new friends
• Learning new skills
• And taking part in fun and social events.
You too can look back fondly on this moment as being one of the best things you ever did in your life.
We hope you can join us on an event soon where you can meet like minded people and share amazing new experiences!
