As we celebrate the first anniversary of the re-opening of Elizabeth Gaskell’s House I would like to pay a huge tribute to the many people who have worked so hard over the past year to make it such a great success.  Through the energy, dedication and commitment of so many people the house has quickly become one of Manchester’s most popular new visitor destinations and one that is unique amongst the city’s cultural attractions.  And thanks to our visitors too whose positive feedback, support and enthusiasm serves to spur us on to even greater achievements in our second year!
