SALFORD ALTERNATIVE JUBILEE PART 2
 

Star date: 27th May 2012

OFF WITH THEIR HEADS ROYAL RUCKUS

Cheryl's Big Party
Sunday 3rd June 6pm-6am
Islington Mill £6

The best way to describe this massive 12 hour party is an ironic statement on the Jubilee where everyone gets crowned King or Queen on arrival and there's dressing up, Royal Banquet piñatas and a Queen's Café. More Off With Their Heads mayhem starring New York performance collective, Cheryl, plus Eggs Collective, and DJs spinning in two rooms.

STUFF THE JUBILEE SALFORD STYLE – Part 2

Ironic statement, piss take, call it what you will but one thing is for sure, the Off With Their Heads presentation title gives a clue that no-one's taking Her Maj over seriously. Indeed, in a democratic gesture to the people of Salford, everyone who goes to this Royal Ruckus will be crowned a King or Queen upon arrival, having taken an oath on the disco orb.

It's a massive 12 hour party, following up last year's Off With Their Heads Royal Wedding bash (see here) and this time New York art collective and disco deviants Cheryl will be exploring the weird relationship that Brits have with the Royal Family and the wacky rituals around it – hopefully they will also be examining the strange two fingered salute from 50% of the population (according to recent polls).

Certainly expect the unexpected from Cheryl, with participatory rituals, flash mob processions, Royal Banquet piñatas, dressing up and a collaboration with the Volkov Commanders, fresh from their future crater on the moon (see here), and the aptly named Organ Freeman band.

Meanwhile, Sex Hands are also doing a performance and the Egg Collective promise time travel, face sellotaping, wig fashioning, `dirty home videos, mystery guests and head butting' – nice.

There's also two rooms stuffed full of DJs with Chew Disco, Bollox, Trash-o-Rama, Raw Like Sissy, Good Afternoon, Northern Crosses, Brutal Ruth and Jorge Vieira. You can also listen to Queen songs all day at the Queen Café which will also have a special Windsor themed menu.

Off With Their Heads will all be very weird and a definite antidote to straight Jubilee street parties. Let's just say Liz probably won't be amused…

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

Star date: 17th July 2018

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.

THOUSANDS ATTEND TRUMP GO HOME RALLY MANCHESTER

DONALD TRUMP... 'THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS LEADER SINCE THE 1930s' 

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK. Groups from every section of society that Trump has dissed were represented on stage – from Mexican dancers to an ex-US soldier, to trade unions, peace, climate change, refugee, LGBT and women's rights campaigners, plus spokespeople for youth and children. 

To kick off the evening, Manchester councillor, Pat Karney, called Trump "The most dangerous leader since the 1930s...we have to stop the ideas of Trump going across the world..."
