Patrons Event: Exploring the Hulme Trust Archive

  • Thursday 5 April 2018 - 6pm - 8pm

Explore the fascinating Hulme Trust Archive held at Chetham’s Library. The Hulme Trust dates back to the will of William Hulme, a member of a prosperous Manchester family who died 26 October 1691. The collection includes historic documents and deeds concerning land ownership and medieval life in Manchester.

Patrons are invited to enjoy us for a drink in the atmospheric Baronial Hall and enjoy a talk by Project Archivist Grace Timperley, who has been working on cataloguing the archive, and to view items from the archive which will be on display.

This is a free event for Patrons of Chetham’s Library.
