Culture Show last week; Shameless and The Sun this week!

Last week Salford Lads’ Club featured prominently in a BBC2 ‘Culture Show’ special about The Smiths.  Last night we featured in a scene in the final episode of Channel 5’s ‘Shameless’, with Frank Gallagher ranting outside our front door about tourists and mobile phones. Meanwhile, in today’s edition of The Sun newspaper, Stewart Whittingham’s report about Salford as a holiday destination includes a photograph of him outside the club, dressed in shorts and sandals.  We were the first place that he visited of course!

Smiths Weekend

Our famous front doorway and the Smiths room feature in two BBC programmes about The Smiths this weekend. Tomorrow 6 music’s Liz Kershaw accompanies Craig Gill on a Smiths Tour and on Sunday Tim Samuels chats to Stuart Maconie as part of a BBC 2 Culture Show special.
