Meet the people behind I Love MCR. We’re as Manchester as it gets. A small band of incorruptible, like-minded individuals who share the same passion; love and affection for our city. Some people were born here, some people were drawn here. We are cool, cultured, cosmopolitan – just like Manchester. We are a ‘family’ who love Manchester and we hope you do, too.
