INNIT: URBAN MUSICAL REVIEW

Don't think The Lowry's ever seen owt like it… hoodies dancing down the aisles…an audience on its feet, stomping and singing along…

`G for Giro, forty odd quid…but that's the living wot's got to feed our kids…
Then there's me bird, she wants some clobber
So I've got to go out and rob some dollar…
G for Giro, forty odd quid…but that's the living wot's got to feed our kids…'

This finale and standing ovation for Innit:Urban Musical was almost Salford coming together and sticking two fingers up at anyone who looks down their snouts at media stereotypes of our city.

 

 
 

HAZEL WATCH – THE CLOCK IS TICKING

Salford MP and Communities Minister, Hazel Blears, is still rattling on about politicians `listening and responding’ to communities.  So why hasn’t she responded to our open letter, written and sent to Parliament last November?

 

 
 

SALFORD CITY FC – THE GREAT ESCAPE

Four different managers this season, almost a complete new team now brought in.  The race is on for Salford City to avoid relegation from the Unibond Division One North…

22 games left, 12 wins needed.  It's `squeaky bum time' (copyright Sir Alex Ferguson) as Salford City fight for their lives.  First up was the mighty, top of the league FC Halifax Town…

 

 
 

SALFORD CITY FC - THE GREAT ESCAPE Pt2

Forget Manchester City's £100million bids to stave off relegation.  Here in Salford a whole new team and a fourth manager this season has been brought in to save Salford City from the drop. 

We talk to Darren Quick, Salford's equivalent of Sheikh Mansour, and surely the bravest chairman in the whole of British football…

 

 
 

INNIT: URBAN MUSICAL

When Innit was first previewed in Salford over a year ago it was described by Salford Star’s reviewer as `epic’…`brilliant’…`mint’…and more.  Now a new production of the all singing, all dancing hoodie extravaganza is kicking off live on stage from 27th -31st January.  Not to be missed…

MEDIA CITY SALFORD - A hint of things to come?  Radio 5 presenter Nicky Campbell has revealed in a self proclaimed "world exclusive" that he will be patronising the BBC's Salford move with his presence…but he ain't going to live here, no way!!!

IN SUPURBIA…

Promoted as `Supurbia', Countryside Properties' website boasts that in New Broughton `everything you could wish for will be there'.  The `New Broughton' residents we spoke to just wished they had never moved there in the first place…
