Manchester Literature Festival Presents

We team up with Manchester Literature Festival this Autumn to present events and screenings which focus on local literary talent and explore the relationships between film and literature. CP Lee presents an introduced screening on Love on the Dole, and David Constantine will discuss his short stories, and in particular the story which has been adapted as 45 Years, one of the must-see British films of 2015.
