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 CITY COUNCIL THREAT LETTER CAUSES ELDERLY CITIZENS ANGUISH

Star date: 22nd October 2018

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

BOLTON NHS HOSPITAL WORKERS CELEBRATE HUGE PAY VICTORY

Star date: 22nd October 2018

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.
