    Jen Brister - Alan Turing Memorial / Frankies Toastie Bar

    Jen Brister - Alan Turing Memorial / Frankies Toastie Bar

    Your Tour Guide is the bloody awesome Jen Brister.

    Join Jen and your host Vic Elizabeth Turnbull for a travel guide like no other, as they take you on a trip to one of the UK's only 'old skool' toastie restaurants situated in the centre of Manchester. Here they sample some of the oddest things to put between two slices of dirty white bread. After lunch, join the pair as they pay tribute to Alan Turing and visit his memorial in Sackville Gardens; discover more about one of the most important icons of the 20th century, why it's taken a tragically long time for his genius to be recognised and how his work is still making an impact today. The tour also includes talk of vegan eggs, eating balls and meaty guilty pleasures. You'd be daft not to come with us.
