The Secret Circus is back at The Old Pint Pot with a new Under The Sea show and fresh surprises, as the 'anything goes' happening brings what it describes as 'a night of burlesque, boylesque, drag, comedy, music, whipping, mermaids, fish and puns...' 

There's lots of burlesque acts - Little Peaches, Vendetta Vain, Ginger La Rouge, Claire De Lunacy, Kitty Campari, Anne Addiction and doubles burlesque by Zaina Zuzu and Chéri Whambam.

Comedy comes via Thick Richard Duffy and Josh Jones, comedy duo Toots and Leigh, and comedy pirates and comic con fixtures Jollyboat. Sideshow act Porcelain will dare audience sensibilities, whilst Dave Viney's spoken word 'will help them recover'...

Also appearing are folk singer Matthew Webster and LA-based synth-pop-rock band Chanel and the Circus, with more acts still to be announced. However, it's the vibe as much as the performers that puts The Secret Circus on its own...

"The Secret Circus is a family and I think that's why so many people connect to it" explains the groups' Chanel Samson "It reflects a spirit of individuality and acceptance no matter who you are or where you come from or what you like in bed! Just so long as we respect each other and come from a space of love, anything goes."

And fellow Circus founder, Eve Howlett adds: "The Secret Circus was created to showcase unbelievable talent. From newbies to full-time performers, our acts have one thing in common: the passion to entertain. In just a few years we have been shocked by how much it has exceeded our expectations. We welcome everyone to join us and run away with the circus!"

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL SPENT ALMOST £10,000 ON MIPIM PROPERTY JAUNT

Star date: 21st June 2018

COUNCIL SPENT £5,750 ON MIPIM PR IN SOUTH OF FRANCE

Salford Council spent almost £10,000 on the jaunt to the MIPIM property orgy in Cannes. A newly published contract register shows that, as well as the £4,022 costs for the City Mayor and two officers to go to the South of France paid by unknown private sector companies, the Council also spent £5,750 on marketing and PR for MIPIM.

The contract register also shows the Council is spending £9,500 on a 'Salford Story' press consultant, £118,000 on its failed 'digital community hub', over £14,000 on a 'leadership programme' and, er, £25,000 on milk and bread?

'WE RECOGNISE THE HISTORIC INTEREST'...BUT THEY'RE BEING DEMOLISHED!

Despite musical protests and petitions, the National Grid is adamant that the Salford gas holders, made famous in the Dirty Old Town anthem, will be demolished.

Campaigners are asking for the Grid to re-think a new use for the structures, like in many other towns and cities, but the company states that while "We recognise the historic interest in the Salford gasholder...the structure is being dismantled..."

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
