hits. Also appearing on the day will be Ben Volpeliere-Pierrot from Curiosity Killed The Cat and Irlam's own Jess Kemp with her band.

Soulfest Saturday on June 3rd is headlined by soul superstar Alexander O'Neal, with support from Dave Finnegan's Commitments, with the original head-butting drummer Mickah Wallace and various cast members from Alan Parker's black comedy. Also on the bill are 80s R&B stalwarts, Imagination, disco divas Odyssey and dance/soul outfit K-Klass.

Retro Sunday on June 4th features Jason Donovan, Toyah, Dodgy, Owen Paul and Doctor and the Medics.

This is the second year of Irlam Live, run by three local people, Phil Brookes, Darren Goulden and Sam Butterworth, and in its first year the event attracted a crowd of 8,000 over the weekend.

"Last year we had a fantastic turn-out and incredible weather to match" says Darren Goulden "The standard of our line-up has improved across-the-board this year and we're especially excited to be opening the festival with Junior Marvin's Wailers flying straight in just to play our festival

"We've worked on many improvements since our first year and this year we're adding lots of exciting new elements which you'll hear about over the coming months" he adds "Last year we had a big focus on high-quality street food which continues this year with even more variety...We're also working on increasing the number of bars on the site and, as always, looking to keep bar prices as reasonable as possible to ensure a great weekend for everyone."

I would suggest that you check out a group called The All-Nighters on you tube. If you could add them to the line up it would be a real bonus.

SHOCKING INDICTMENT OF UNFAIR WELFARE SYSTEM

'For the first time in his life he became a priority...'

Pat Mullen was homeless for over twenty years and, as a single man with drug and alcohol issues, was always bottom of the list for housing. Because of his chaotic circumstances, Pat became ill and recently had to have a leg amputated. Only then could he get somewhere to live, as, for the first time in his life, he became a priority...

"If he hadn't had a leg amputated he would still be on the streets" says his brother, John "...No-one is listening."

SALFORD ALDI STORE LATEST TO SPELL TH' HEIGHT WRONG

The Aldi store, which replaced the Co-op on Bolton Road, is the latest to get the spelling of Irlams o' th' Height wrong on its signs. Few people who don't actually live in the area get the name right, for some reason.

A local resident who couldn't get Aldi to put its sign right, wrote to the Salford Star and the store was contacted. A spokesperson responded: "We're currently correcting the sign." Why can no-one spell Irlams o' th' Height?
