Thomas Clarkson Day in collaboration with the Challenging Hate Forum

Join Manchester Cathedral and the Challenging Hate Forum as we mark Thomas Clarkson Day on Thursday 26 October from 2-4pm.

On 28 October 1787, Thomas Clarkson gave a speech to a packed audience in Manchester Cathedral to mobilise opposition to the transatlantic slave trade in the city for the first time. 

Each year we mark this event with a day to unite the people of Greater Manchester in their commitment to eradicate all forms of racism, colonialism, modern slavery and hate crime.

This is a public event, to which we welcome faith groups and community organisations, those with whom they work, the Cathedral community and the general public.
