The Hacienda

Peter Hook, Tony Wilson, Bernard Sumner, Happy Mondays, Central Station, the `Salford lot'… the Hacienda, while seen as a `Madchester' thing was actually born from Salford wit and creativity.

Opened on 21st May 1982, the Hac became a legend in its own strifetime and the whole of May and a bit of June 2012 is being turned over to major celebrations.

It all starts on May 2nd with the launch of Hacienda 30 xxx – the Hacienda's thirtieth anniversary exhibition at the Manchester Photographic Gallery. This features memorabilia from Peter Hook's private collection, rare Hac in motion photos from Ian Tilton and a model of the original Hac by Nick Hardy for anyone who was too young or too out of it to remember the old sweaty, smoky, ridiculously long queued club that happened big style in the late 80s and was known for dancin', partyin', staring at people, drinkin' lots of water and stuff.

The Exhibition runs until May 29th and to go with it is an online auction of some of the memorabilia, including the club's front doors, the infamous board room table, internal signage, lit Haçienda signs, bollards, original posters and flyers, Y3 trainers and, er, `stain glass windows' (shouldn't that be `well stained glass'?-ed). Details of the Auction will be launched this week at www.haciendaxxx.com

Also to be launched mid-May is a new collection of `bespoke' clothes by ellesse who have been collaborating with The Hacienda team to, apparently produce "something very special; a bespoke collection to commemorate three decades of the legendary club". Believe it when we see it – and there's nowt to see at the moment but details should be at www.fac51thehacienda.com very soon.


Meanwhile, there's also three parties kicking off…

X1 – Hacienda 30, happening in the car park under the club's original dance floor on the original day it opened 21st May. The site is now a crap block of flats, this event is limited to 500 people and you've prob got no chance of getting a ticket. You can try at the website which will also give details of how to `be there' online. Ticket details at www.fac51theHaçienda.com


X2 - Hacienda 30 at Sankeys, Radium Street, Manchester, M4 6AY Saturday 2nd June 10pm to 6am
