This coming June 11th, International Man of History and award winning author Mr Tony Flynn, will be embarking on another of his legendary historical pub walks around Eccles.
Meeting 12 pm at Eccles Train station and finishing at 2 pm outside the Royal Oak pub, learn about murder, mayhem, bodysnatchers, millionaires, arsenic beer, rioting, looting, celebrities, secret tunnels, and thats all in one pub!
Tickets will be just £4 and will involve a drinkypoo in the Lamb, and maybe a half in the Albert Edward. (It's not his round).
Tony says ...
"We used to have a buffett and quiz in the Royal Oak which had a room available for a brawl if the days entertainment went wrong. We shall have a quiz though in a pub, sadly no buffet so bring yer own butties, no tongue butties for me thanks."
Tony needs no introduction as he a Salford legend, his guides to Salford's historical past are essential reading, his history of the pubs of eccles exchanges hands on Amazon for almost £25 per copy, astounding considering Tony only ever sold them for £1.50 (Not taking account the cost of publishing it).
Tony served his sentence as community reporter and history editor at SalfordOnline and has published countless stories of the past, all available to peruse on this link.
This once in a lifetime not to be missed experience is limited to just 20 place, so it's best to get in contact with him on Facebook to let him know you will be coming along for the
