Join us for a FREE tour of The Met.

Did you know that The Met held one of Joy Division’s most famous gigs with a raucous crowd protesting against a change of singers? Did you know that it was the democratic home to where many of Bury’s major decisions were made, or where the accused were given their freedom of speech in a court of law?

Join us for a FREE tour with The Met’s very own Nick Smale. Visit backstage areas normally closed to the public, and learn all about the history of this fascinating building and about how it is used today.
