Fair Exchange

The Royal Exchange Arcade. It's part of the Royal Exchange - a wonderful building and thriving theatre, which I shall post about another time. The Royal Exchange building and the theatre itself are reputed to be haunted. One of the ghosts is said to be that of the actor and founding artistic director, James Maxell. Another is that of a maternal Victorian lady, well dressed and with "a passion for drink".

Meanwhile, 10 minutes walk away is the Manchester Christmas Fair in Piccadilly Gardens, which I have not covered this month- this YouTube video does it justice, set to Silent Night:


  1. Wonderful, I can almost smell chestnuts roasting, lovely!

  2. I just love to see the Christmas trees and decorations around the world on our CDP blog network!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours, Chrissy!

  3. And people still in shirt sleeves!!

  4. What great mean to measure life and history. Made me wonder whether there are any places over here with such an interesting background.

    Please have you all a blessed Christmas.
