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!
No it’s not a dream – the club and Coronation Street star in scenes from the new BBC One drama series called “Survivors”. Episode one is on Sunday. It was filmed here in June and our famous sign was transformed into a call for prayer. See more on http://www.bbc.co.uk/survivors/
