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…

TENSION, 'BULLYING' AND POLITICAL DOG FIGHTING IN LOCAL ELECTION CONTEST

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?

NEW SALFORD ‘CLEAN’ COMEDY NIGHT HUGE SUCCESS IN IRLAMS O’ TH’ HEIGHT

Star date: 22nd April 2018

CAN 'CLEAN' COMEDY WORK IN SALFORD? ABSOLUTELY!

This week saw a trial 'clean comedy' night at The Vine Cafe in Irlams O' Th' Height, with five comics wowing the sold out venue, and not a swear word or lewd reference in earshot...

"It had to be right kind of acts" explained organiser Sally Griffiths, as the mix of new performers and professionals pulled off the clean comedy night with aplomb (ooh, er, missus...).
