On Saturday night Peter Hook and Mani played to a packed house in the concert hall for ” Touching Bass” an in conversation event arranged by Alison Bell. This is the third of these popular fundraising events for the club and attracted music fans from as far afield as the USA and Argentina. The audience were treated to great stories by these 2 Manchester Music legends. They are both Manchester United fans and former United star Brian McClair was in the audience; City’s Paul Lake introduced the event to give a semblance of balance to this red affair!
We have a great event at the club on Friday 3rd February with Smiths drummer Mike Joyce and Man City star Paul Lake talking about Music and Football. It should be another fascinating evening in the concert hall following on from talks with Tim Burgess in July and Peter Hook in October.
Mike is currently helping our fundraising with a T shirt we designed using his original photo of Morrissey. We have already sold £10,000 of the T shirts and the profits from the sales are going towards a visit to New York at Easter for young people at the club. The shirts are also available on our shop page.
Tickets for the event are available from
