Our Programmes

In 1884, Henry Royce started his electrical and mechanical business. His first car, the two-cylinder Royce 10 was made in the corner of a Manchester factory 20 years later in 1904. In total, Royce made three of these vehicles, one of which was sold to one of the factory directors, Henry Edmunds. Edmunds showed his new purchase to his friend, Charles Rolls, who owned a London-based showroom selling imported vehicles. 

The Liverpool and Manchester Railway was a railway opened on 15th September 1830 between the North West towns of Liverpool and Manchester in the United Kingdom. It was the first railway to rely exclusively on steam power, with no horse-drawn traffic permitted at any time; to be entirely double track throughout its length; to have a signalling system; to be fully timetabled; to be powered entirely by its own motive power; and to carry mail. 

Manchester United Football Club is a professional football club based in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, England, that currently competes in the Premier League, the top flight of English football. Founded as Newton Heath LYR Football Club in 1878, the club changed its name to Manchester United in 1902 and moved to Old Trafford in 1910. 

The Manchester Free Library opened on 5th September 1852 in Manchester, England. It was the first to be set up under the provisions of the Public Libraries Act 1850, which allowed local authorities to impose a local tax of one penny to pay for the service. The terms of the Act required that a poll of ratepayers had to be held before the local authority was allowed to spend money on public libraries, and at least two-thirds had to vote in favour. In Manchester’s case only 40 of the more than 4000 eligible voters opposed. 

The Manchester Small-Scale Experimental Machine (SSEM), nicknamed Baby, was the world’s first stored-program computer. It was built at the Victoria University of Manchester (now The University of Manchester), England, by Frederic C. Williams, Tom Kilburn and Geoff Tootill, and ran its first program on 21st June 1948.
