More details here…


Issue 3 of Salford Media Scene is `Salford suss in sounds, sights and nights' and includes everything that's moving in the city's media scene with a community slant.

You'll find a four page feature on the top artist in Salford, Jo Carlon, aka Salford Artist; interviews with Steve Evets, just back from a cameo in Pirates of the Caribbean, and Andy Whyment, who plays Kirk in Corrie. Plus Media City Madness, a six page piece on `arts cuts and Quays capers', and Where's All Our Cinemas Gone? – Salford has one cinema for over 250,000 people!

There's features on theatre, film, ale art, a new video production company called Pink Grapefruit, a radio production company called Twisted Ear, and people who dress up as Tudors and hang around schools.

You'll find music reviews and interviews with Misfit Music, Original Headits, Vinnie Peculiar, Trojan Horse, Class Actions and the amazing track Media City Ditty… "``Media City you're so shitty' starts the song, which goes on to suggest bribery, hypocrisy and nepotism… `Status can be got with your knickers down' the punkish, jazzy vocalist sings" writes the reviewer.

Never mind Media City, how about Higher Broughtonwood where all the best dramas are happening? And did you know there was a secret bar in Salford that's incredibly famous?

All is revealed in Salford Media Scene…

Available from all good community outlets including Langworthy Cornerstone, Seedley Pets on Langworthy Road, Ordsall Community Café, shops along Littleton Road in Lower Kersal, St Seb's Community Centre in Charlestown, the Star Inn in Broughton and loads more.

As a red i would like to congratulate the blues for having the moral courage to ask Mr Cook to resign after sending his disgracveful e mail. Its just a real shame and slur on Salford that the NWDAs board member Mr John Merry didnt have the same courage when it was reported on this site that his CeO sent an equally disgusting email. Shame on Mr Merry for this lack of moral courage and thanks to the Star for bringing it to light. Im a red but lets celebrate whichever team brings the championship back to manchester and if it happens to be City at least Cook wont be there to sully their achievements. Good riddance to bad rubbish and its just a shame the same ethics dont apply amongst the higher echelons of our civil service thanks to people like Merry.

£19MILLION SALFORD COUNCIL PLANNING SCANDAL AS PRESSURE GROWS TO MAKE PROCESS TRANSPARENT

Star date: 27th May 2015 

£19MILLION AND 830 AFFORDABLE HOMES LOST TO SALFORD IN JUST 12 MONTHS

After years of the Salford Star documenting how developers in the city are avoiding paying planning fees and building affordable homes, the pressure is growing on Salford Council to make the process more transparent.

Salford has lost £19million in planning fees and 830 affordable homes in the last twelve months alone, as developers have submitted confidential reports showing that their schemes would not be `viable' if they had to pay the fees – even though in some cases they are forecast to make up to £24million profit. Now the Royal Borough of Greenwich is proposing to make the confidential viability reports public.
