Dedicated to the Manchester Branch.

The original description is named "Manchester Medley". SCDDB also has a (S64+R64) medley called "A Manchester Medley", by an unknown deviser. It is quite possible that to distinguish the two medleys this dance was nicknamed "T' Other Manchester Medley"; it was originally entered in SCDDB under that name. That name has now been added as an alias.
