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.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

Star date: 17th April 2018

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.
