Irlam is to stage a huge festival for the second year from June 2nd to 4th at Prince's Park, attracting huge names for three themed days.

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.

Tomorrow morning, parents of children who are at The Grange and trade union will lobby councillors before a full meeting of the Council to rubber stamp almost £16million of cuts.

CONSULTATIONS ON FUTURE OF SALFORD ‘DIDN’T MAKE SENSE’ ADMITS GMCA

Star date: 20th February 2017

MASSIVE GREEN BELT AND HOUSING PLANS 'DIDN'T MAKE SENSE TO ORDINARY PEOPLE'

Consultations on the future of Salford and every other area of Greater Manchester were "bewildering" and didn't "make sense to ordinary people" the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has admitted in a report to be discussed this week.

These consultations on devolution and the GM Spatial Framework were to decide on things like Green Belt destruction, how many houses were to be built and lots more. They were absolutely crucial to the future of the area, and for the GMCA to admit they didn't make sense is staggering, if true.
