CORNERSTONE'S FUNKEY DAY SCARES CELEBS
FunKey Day
Saturday 29th January 11am-4pm free
Langworthy Cornerstone

"I'm a celebrity, but you won't get me in there to eat that" Coronation Street's Alan Halsall, who plays Tyrone.

A nasty Bush Tucker Trial in a specially designed `jungle room' at The Cornerstone is scaring off celebs from a taste of The Cornerstone's FunKey Day this Saturday.

The Trial - which includes scary starters, a main course and a pudding - is part of a full day of family events to celebrate the community taking over The Cornerstone in Langworthy from the PCT.

The day includes live music from rappers Misfit Music and Fresh Connections, plus stalls, kids' arts and crafts, a treasure hunt, cookery demos and that Bush Tucker Trial – try it if you dare!

"I know which side my bread's buttered on - and it isn't the Cornerstone's Bush Tucker Trial. Good luck to anyone who dares take the challenge!" Nigel Pivaro.

The `I'm A Celeb' jungle comes to Langworthy this weekend with a Bush Tucker Trial that's guaranteed to test the taste buds, eyes and stomachs of anyone brave enough to try it. So far, both Alan Halsall and Nigel Pivaro have declined the offer to sample the menu, while wannabe king of the jungle, Shaun Ryder, has an open invite – but he seems to be lying low!

The Trial, which happens between 1pm and 2pm, is just part of a full day of entertainment as The Cornerstone throws open its doors to celebrate it getting a 20 year lease on its building for the community from Salford PCT. The keys will be officially handed over by Mike Burrows, chief exec of the PCT, at 2pm, and kids will have the chance to make creative keys and key rings in arts and crafts workshops beforehand.

After the key ceremony there's live music by top Salford rappers Misfit Music and Fresh Connections, plus Salford inspired folk by the Jane and Mike Band.

The day has a health theme and there's face painting, stalls, quizzes, a treasure hunt, cookery demos, a curling competition, dance exhibitions and alternative therapy tasters. The ReTracing Salford team will also be launching its latest exhibition upstairs (see here) and there'll also be work on display from the SCMP digital photography classes.

"FunKey Day is a celebration of a long struggle by the community to finally get the lease for the Langworthy Cornerstone" says John Phillips, manager of The Cornerstone "As well as getting the keys to the building it's all about the community getting together to try something new and do something different.

"FunKey Day also has a health theme and the Bush Tucker Trial will test the taste buds with new and exciting foods people may not have tried, with disgusting bits thrown in the mix" he adds "So try it if you dare!"

Saturday 29th January 11am – 4pm free.
