Manchester greats: Alan Turing
Please note change to time from previously advertised
Please note this event is at 2pm - 4.30pm, which has been updated from previously advertised.
Who was Alan Turing? Was he really the unworldly boffin who invented the computer, won the war, decoded the sunflower's patterns and died a homosexual martyr? Did Manchester offer him an intellectual and social home or did it try its best to forget his memory? Jonathan Swinton will tease out the reality and talk about why Turing chose Manchester to work in over every other city in the world and what he did when he got here.
