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

Star date: 21st June 2018

COUNCIL SPENT £5,750 ON MIPIM PR IN SOUTH OF FRANCE

Salford Council spent almost £10,000 on the jaunt to the MIPIM property orgy in Cannes. A newly published contract register shows that, as well as the £4,022 costs for the City Mayor and two officers to go to the South of France paid by unknown private sector companies, the Council also spent £5,750 on marketing and PR for MIPIM.

The contract register also shows the Council is spending £9,500 on a 'Salford Story' press consultant, £118,000 on its failed 'digital community hub', over £14,000 on a 'leadership programme' and, er, £25,000 on milk and bread?

Star date: 20th June 2018

'WE RECOGNISE THE HISTORIC INTEREST'...BUT THEY'RE BEING DEMOLISHED!

Despite musical protests and petitions, the National Grid is adamant that the Salford gas holders, made famous in the Dirty Old Town anthem, will be demolished.

Campaigners are asking for the Grid to re-think a new use for the structures, like in many other towns and cities, but the company states that while "We recognise the historic interest in the Salford gasholder...the structure is being dismantled..."

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
