IT'S V-DAY!

The 100th anniversary of International Women's Day collides with the tenth anniversary of V-Day, a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls. And to celebrate and commemorate, there's a huge event at Manchester Town Hall next Tuesday night.

First, local women will perform Eve Ensler's groundbreaking play, The Vagina Monologues, with Strictly Come Dancing Star, Jill Halfpenny, as the celebrity host. This is followed by a debate chaired by BBC North West news presenter, Ranvir Singh, which will cover topics including trafficking, abuse, rape, slavery and early sexualisation of our young girls.

The event is also a fundraiser for Manchester women's charity, The Birdhouse Fund, which has launched a campaign to raise £20k for local women.

A £50 VIP ticket gets you into a champagne reception at 6:30pm with the Lord Mayor in the Lord Mayor's Banqueting Hall, where you can meet the cast, celebrity host and other special guests. Tickets to see the show and debate are £20 (£10 students).

"We're hoping that through this event, local women will come out and help us celebrate the empowerment of women and raise funds for those that need some help" says Jane Kenyon of The Birdhouse Fund "It may be that they're stuck in an abusive relationship or simply lost their job and need a helping hand. That's what the Birdhouse is about."

The Vagina Monologues begins at 7pm and the debate starts at 9pm. There are only 500 tickets on sale. Details at www.birdhousefund.org

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
