The ten day Salford Star pop-up exhibition and shop reaches its final day tomorrow (Sunday 9th December) with events and an auction of Salford relics and bargains conducted by actor and long time Star contributor, Nigel Pivaro.
The shop and exhibition opens at 10am in the unit on Hankinson Way next to Lloyds Bank, with events beginning around 1:30pm and the auction at around 3pm.
Performing will be Salford writer and Sounds of Salford radio broadcaster, Simon Williams, currently making a name for himself as a John Cooper Clarke-style poet, guesting last month at the International Arts and Homeless Festival.
Also performing will be probably the finest singer/songwriter in Salford, the ace Chris Flynn, whose videos have starred Maxine Peake amongst others. Chris contributed the beautifully crafted track, Anita, to the Salford Star benefit CD, All Materials of Value Have Been Removed, and will be performing a short acoustic set.
Neo:artist, Sandra Bouguerch, who does incredibly weird and wonderful art installations at galleries, is bringing her family show, Party On, which promises to pop the Precinct.
The day concludes with an auction of the strange and surreal, ranging from genuine pieces of the Salford Quays Cargo Cranes and Dirty Old Town Gas Holders, to a brick from Ringo Starr's childhood home...*
...Also on offer will be Christmas bargains, including beautiful brand new vinyl records of The Fall and John Cooper Clarke, amazing children's blankets, cushions and hair bands from the exclusive Savannah-Rose Collection, a very rare old double pack of playing cards from Manchester Liners, a Bob Marley mosaic by Paul Houghton Mosaics, two prints of A View From The Crescent in 1820, framed Salford Red Devils photos by Gareth Lyons, signed prints by Salford artist Joe Coffey, framed photos of Lost Salford Pubs, artwork by Sharon Hooley and more...Something for everyone, plus free cakes and nibbles...
