2nd FLOOR – Is Manchester turning its back on music?

 Welcome to the second in the Floor electronic music talks and discussions panel discussion. The event starts at 7.00pm sharp at Lock 91, 9 Century Street, Manchester, M3 4QL.

This time, we bring the the two often opposing worlds of music and property development together and ask;

“Whilst Manchester’s skyline is littered with cranes, it’s historic music venues are closing their doors. Are cities turning their back on the cultural institutions that made them in favour of soul-less luxury apartments, or is change inevitable? Can Manchester be the blueprint for a city where we break new ground without forgetting our roots?”

Panel members;

Nathan Cornish; Director at Urban Splash
Simon Binns; What’s On Editor at the Manchester Evening News
Paulette Constable; Radio Presenter / DJ
Verity Gardner; Director of Fat Out’s Burrow at Islington Mill
Dr Tom Gillespie; Partisan Collective cooperative member

Discussion is moderated by Alice Woods
