September events


September brings a bumper crop of psychogeographical shenanigans.

For First Sunday, This Sunday we’ll be embarking on one of our occasional twilight wanders. Meet us at the Engels statue in Tony Wilson Place at 7pm on Sunday 4th September (and yes that probably is the most absurd sounding address within the peoples republic of Mancunia).

The following week we’ll be off exploring Yorkshire. The 4th World Congress of Psychogeographers is meeting again in Huddersfield 8-10th September and their details are here:  Proving we are crap Situationists as ever we send convivial greetings and respect to all flavours of psychogeography. I’m blethering on the Friday and enjoying other folks ideas the rest of the time
