Now in its eighth year, Sounds From The Other City is Salford's unique music happening that springs up at venues all around Chapel Street over one Bank Holiday Sunday.

You simply buy a ticket for £18, and swap it at Islington Mill on the day for a wristband which allows access to every show and party along the route. It's more an experience than a `festival' with all shades of music covered, most of which wouldn't be seen dead near a tv music channel.

There's so much to cover it's best to crawl the SFTOC website www.soundsfromtheothercity.com but here's a venue by venue guide…

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

Before a full meeting of Salford Council this morning, residents campaigning against development on green spaces in the city held a demonstration outside the Civic Centre.

Representatives of campaigns including from Campbell Road, Duncan Matheson, Walkden and Buile Hill Park then went into the meeting to hear City Mayor, Paul Dennett, say that the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was "protecting green belt and green spaces", after Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood had accused the Council of "throwing residents to the wolves of rampant development".
