When Manchester’s first city centre park in over a century opened its gates, we teamed up with the National Lottery Heritage Fund to explore the past, present and future of the site.
In this three part series we delved into the rich history of Mayfield Park, looking at The River, The Green Space, and The Culture of this area. Featuring archival audio from Manchester’s Central Library archive, this series features guests like author Robert Graham and Hacienda legend DJ Paulette.
The whole series was produced by young producer Jamie Green, who joined Reform on a Kickstart placement, with on site audio recordings, vox pops and interviews conducted by a group of Manchester Adult Education Service participants.
Read more about Jamie’s journey here. The podcast itself hopes to have its own legacy within the site, with QR codes to be placed on windows, allowing visitors to listen to episodes whilst immersing themselves in the park. Listen now.
