Before we delve into all things team building in Manchester, let’s talk about breasts.

Did you know that Manchester is named after breasts?

A settlement between two hills, Manchester was originally called ‘Mamucium’ which meant ‘breast shaped hills’.

Interesting huh? 😀

   

Manchester/Madchester/Cottonopolis. The birthplace of the industrial revolution, Quidditch, the vegetarian diet, Emmeline Pankhurst, Noel Gallagher, Tyson Fury & Danny Boyle. Where the atom was first split. Where the suffragette movement was started.

Oasis, The Stone Roses, Take That, The Smiths, Joy Division.

Red. Blue. United. City.
