The Kings Arms is hosting a full on Day of Theatrical Horror tomorrow with Stage Fright, running from 1pm to 10pm, in a rather scary run up to Halloween...

The day, which is punctuated with talks, screenings, performances and even an evil quiz, is headlined by two highly acclaimed spooky plays, Joe O'Byrne's The Haunting of Blaine Manor at 8pm (see Salford Star preview – click here) and Daniel Thackeray's The Dead, Live, at 2pm, a 'postmodern ghost story' recently seen at the GM Fringe and London Horror Festivals.

Throughout the event, Mallinson's Mausoleum will be situated in the snug with a unique collection of horror stuff, including Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee artwork, created especially for Stage Fright by Brian Gorman.

The full line-up is...

12:30pm-1pm – THEY WILL NOT REST (The Snug)
A full-cast reading of the acclaimed, rarely-seen stage adaptation by playwright Ross Kelly of the nightmarishly imaginative short story by award-winning Yorkshire horror author Simon Clark, performed with the special permission of the author.  Followed by a short Q&A with the cast and director.

SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERY CLOSURE GOVERNMENT BOMBSHELL

Star date: 20th February 2018

GOVERNMENT REVEALS THAT SALFORD COUNCIL NEVER ASKED FOR FUNDING FLEXIBILITY

Salford City Council recently announced that it was proposing to close all five of its nurseries. And yesterday Children's Lead Member, Lisa Stone, said that it was "a direct result of Government changes, which reduce the use of Dedicated Schools Grant."

However, this afternoon a spokesperson for the Department for Education told the Salford Star that "Any council that had concerns…could apply to the department for increased flexibility" in the Grant's use. They added that "The Department has not received a request from Salford for increased flexibility…" This is bound to increase pressure on the City Mayor to hold off the consultation on the closures.

Star date: 19th February 2018

SALFORD REDS ACCOUNTS SHOW ALMOST £9MILLION LIABILITIES

New accounts published for the Salford Red Devils show that the company made losses of over £700,000 last year and that it has net liabilities of almost £9million, including the £1million loan from Salford City Council.

Despite the directors insisting that restructures and changes within the club forecast a 'modest profit', its auditor states that the conditions "indicate the existence of a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern".

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE PACK SAVE OUR SALFORD NURSERIES MEETING

MEETING VOTES TO TAKE ON SALFORD MAYOR IF NURSERY CLOSURE CONSULTATION GOES AHEAD

Despite pleas from Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, and various Labour councillors to work together to save the five Salford Council nurseries threatened with closure, a packed meeting of hundreds of people voted this afternoon to lobby and protest against the Council unless a consultation on the closures is stopped.

"They can't have a consultation to close the nurseries, and ask us to have a joint campaign" said UNISON's Ameen Hadi "The two things can't happen..."
