Salfordian music veterans, Peter Hook - Joy Division, New Order and The Light bassist - and Mike Sweeney Salford Jets and DJ legend - are hosting a night of live music to raise funds for the Salford Arts Theatre. They will be joined by up and coming Salford band Death To The Strange and other `Local' guests.

There will also be a Q & A where the audience can learn more about the pair's background around Ordsall and Langworthy, and their musical careers. They are performing for free to raise money for the Theatre, which needs 40,000 to replace seating.

Salford Arts Theatre was originally built for the Salford Players, the starting point for many famous Salfordian actors such as Christopher Eccleston, Robert Powell and Ben Kingsley. The event will help maintain an asset for the community. 

"I spent most of my young life around here and I know the area has had some tough times" says Hooky "That's why the theatre needs supporting - it provides a real lifeline for local people. This event will showcase the area's brand new groups and reflects the ethos of theatre in encouraging local talent."

Salford Arts Theatre Manager, Roni Ellis, explains "The theatre is only a small venue but it has a big reputation. Theatre in Salford has produced some of the country's biggest stars. The reason for its success has been grassroots theatre offering local people the chance to tread the boards.

"We are so grateful to Peter and the local bands giving up their time for free to support us" she adds "He is an inspiration, showing you can go from the streets of Salford to the world stage. We've a real legend taking to our stage."

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.
