The Black Lion is hosting a cultural weekend, hosting three events with very different flavours…

FOLKIN' BRILLIANT FOLK NIGHT
featuring Emmott and the Folkestra, and Harp and a Monkey
Tonight, Fri 31st August 7pm £6

Emmott and The Folkestra are a six-piece band from Lancashire, who play a mix of original modern folk songs and covers. The blurb says they `produce a strong mix of rousing stompers and heartfelt ballads'. Harp and a Monkey, it adds, have been described as `Elbow for seafarers and ramblers' with their harp 'n' banjo driven electronica.

BOP LOCAL
Featuring DJ Phil Beckett with guests Mike Sweeney and Tom O'Toole
Saturday September 1st 8pm £6 advance from The Black Lion bar or
www.boplocal.com

Salford's Mike Sweeney guests on the decks, as Bop Local arrives at The Black Lion for a night of 80s and 90s rock, dance and pop tunes with atmosphere. This is beautifully hyped up as `a rave for the over 30s'.

ONE PLAY ONE DAY
Sunday 2nd September 7:30pm £5

We think this is the gist… You turn up and have to write and perform a play within 24 hours. Let them describe it… "In the space of 24 hours, each writer – paired with a director and 4 actors at random – must write a 15 minute play and submit this in the early hours of the morning. The actors and directors then arrive to commence work on staging their new play ahead of the performance that night." Suppose it does what it says on the tin - `one play one day'Tickets available by clicking here or call in at The Black Lion for further details…

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.
