    I hope you dont mind me getting in contact with you to recommend a play that is showing in manchester’s 24:7 theatre festival all next week(last week july)

    Having seen one of the plays, ‘The Inconsistent Whisper of Insanity’ in Liverpool at the weekend i can promise good things – original, energetic, leaving you thinking long after you’ve left the theatre. It’s on all next week, see for all the info, photos and a rather amusing blog

    It’s really intriguing piece as it has a disjointed narrative so the story is told in the wrong order and more is revealed as you go along, representing the womans disjointed memories. Really great story hope you can catch it!

    Hello there,

    Just wanted to tell you about Manchester’s Free For Arts Festival 2010. With over 150 of Manchester’s most creative and active artists involved – this year looks set to be a good one. If you’d like an invite to the Press Launch – just drop us an email and we can get that sorted.

    FREE FOR ARTS FESTIVAL is a not-for-profit celebration of art and performance.

    Manchester will play host to a weeklong series of events fuelled by the varying ideas of local artists and performers united by their desire to provide inventive and unique experiences for the public “on the house”.

    The work will range from contemporary art exhibitions located in diverse city centre spaces to innovatively presented interactive events and one-off performances taking place each evening.

    Hi, hope you don’t mind me contacting you about the official opening of Breadbox in Manchester Picadilly station today.

    A Queen lookalike has official cut the ribbon, and is showing the Manchester is celebrating the nation’s love of tea with this new tea-led food retailer.

    There are some great photographs, and lots of people have stopped by to chat with the ‘Queen’ and asked if she is enjoying her trip to Manchester!

    Love the blog and am keen to speak to you about mentioning us in your blog.

    Let me first introduce myself and Assetz Homes. My names Jacey Coates and i’m part of the marketing team at Assetz Homes. We are a fairly new division of Assetz, predominately a property investment company, started by property guru Stuart Law over 10 years ago.

    Assetz Homes was launched to inject some positivity into the current market, and get the message out there, that it IS attainable to buy your own home, and it IS easier than you may think. We are a complete service, helping first-time buyers get on the property ladder, step by step. We find them a great mortgage, by searching the whole-of-market, we source them the property of their dreams at a discounted price, as we have strong relationships with leading developers, and we take them to completion.

    We are holding a FREE first-time buyer workshop on 1st June at Grinch in the city centre. The purpose of the event is to prove to those who are unsure that they can afford a property, that it is do-able! We have Commercial Director from Rightmove, Miles Shipside speaking at the event, alongside an array of other guest speakers. Pizza and drinks are provided and we would love everybody to join us for an informal night of pizza and property.

    If you wish to find out more about Assetz Homes or the event, please visit our website.

    We had fantastic feedback from all the first-time buyers that attended the event in March and we really want to make people aware that its not all bad news!

    I look forward to hearing from you soon,

    If you have any questions please ask!!

    Many Thanks,

    Jacey Coates

  19. Proud Camden presents Manchester: So Much To Answer For, a retrospective of The Smiths from renowned photographer Kevin Cummins.

    Thirty years since the band originally formed, this exhibition presents a portrait of The Smiths, the northern city that influenced so much of their music and the ensuing ‘Madchester’ scene that followed their split in ’87. Alongside photographs of the band, this exhibition boasts a collection of stark, melancholy cityscapes which capture the cultural, social and political climate that gave birth to Indie music.

    There will be an exclusive private view of the exhibition at Proud Camden on Thursday 31st May from 6.00pm – 8.00pm. This is an RSVP only event, to guarantee a place on the guest list please send your name to

    We’re undertaking a survey among Manchester residents that’s aimed at reducing the number of accidents on our roads, and I wondered if you’d be interested in participating? As well as welcoming any additional promotion of the survey itself, I’d be happy to look at ways we could work exclusively together if the story is of interest. For example, we could use the statistics from the survey as the basis of a unique commentary piece for your publication. And I can send you the final press release containing the findings of the research.

    Please do let me know if this is of interest, of if you’d like to discuss this further. The survey can be found here:
