Gorton 100 Finalé

Posted by editor on December 7, 2009 under Art, sport and leisure, Community

It’s been 100 years since Gorton became part of the City of Manchester and the centenary has been marked by dozens of events over the past twelve months.

Last night the celebrations culminated in a Festive Finalé at Gorton Monastery with music, stalls, speeches and refreshments for all. At dusk, children and adults alike lit a lantern and paraded to Gorton Park for a fire display and fireworks.

Don’t forget to turn the volume up on your computer.
