Education sessions cancelled – that’s snow business!

Like everyone else, we’ve been affected by the Arctic weather this week – many museum staff have been unable to get to work which means we had to close early on Monday and Tuesday.

On Wednesday 6th January 2010 all University staff apart from people providing emergency cover were told to stay at home.

In view of all this we’ve reluctantly had to cancel all education bookings this week and have tried to contact all the schools and colleges.

If you were hoping to visit this week we apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience and will do our best to reschedule the trips.

We will be updating this page as new information becomes available.  You can also check for updates on the main University of Manchester homepage by clicking here.  For information on travel in the Greater Manchester area you can visit the GMPTE website using this link.

UPDATE – You can call the Education Bookings Coordinator, Nora, on 0161 275 2630 as we are now back in the office if you have any questions and/or concerns about your forthcoming visit

  1. Hi Pete, I work at the Manchester Museum and for christmas were doing an advent christmas blog. Would you mind if we used your picture of the snowy university building for one of the posts? Many thanks Laura

    • Hi Laura,
      As the image is on the Learning Blog and the advent christmas blog is part of the Museum you’re more than welcome to use the image – please just put a link back to the original post with the photo.
