Billy Bragg and Jarvis Cocker at Salford Lads’ Club

Yesterday we had a great music event here, part of the Un-Convention weekend. We had settees in the gym, Jarvis Cocker in the Smiths Room and Billy Bragg in the concert hall. And lots more in between – including some amazing performances from the Beating Wing Orchestra, Kid British and an international band led by Graham Massey.
