Tour Description

Join Invisible Manchester’s brilliant tour guide, Danny, for an experience of Manchester like no other. Danny will guide you through the city streets as he has lived them. An ex-veteran, Danny spent years of his life on the streets. It wasn’t until he came to Manchester that he found the support he needed to get him back on his feet. Nowadays, Danny is a successful poet, performing everywhere from the Albert Hall to the famed Manchester Cathedral. Despite this success, his experience of homelessness, and his passion for the homelessness crisis, permeates everything he does. Each stop is marked with either a poignant poetry piece, written by Danny, or an anecdote from his time on the streets.

This tour is educational and enjoyable in equal parts, with a wonderful guide who is happy to answer any of your questions about his experience of homelessness. Combating stigmas around homelessness with his words, Danny’s tour will open your eyes to the real experiences of homeless people in Manchester.
