Goethe-Institut Manchester

Churchgate House, 56 Oxford Street, Manchester, M1 6EU, North West
Open Lectures & Talks'Welcome to what will unfortunately be the last season of events with the Friends of the Goethe-Institut Manchester. As the Goethe-Institut is moving to new premises in 2012, the Friends will no longer have a venue for the kind of events we have organised since 2001. All good things do sometimes have to come to an end and the committee would like to take this opportunity of thanking all Friends for their support and participation in events over the last ten years. We hope they have been fruitful years in the fostering and maintaining of interest in German language and culture - we have certainly enjoyed the challenge of producing a regular programme of events and hope you will enjoy this final term. We wish Alles Gute to all Friends - and friends!'
