LIVE SURREAL COMEDIAN RORY MULLEN AT CAUSTIC COASTAL SALFORD
 

Star date: 14th April 2018

'EXPECT THE SURREAL...EXPECT THE THEATRICAL...MAYBE EVEN EXPECT THE COMEDIC...'

A Field of Hand Painted Grass
Friday 27th April
Caustic Coastal 2.73

It's billed as 'a live comedy show' by Rory Mullen and Ric Stringer but expect much more; and much less. The reviews have been astounding... "He's not that funny tbh" says some punter in the Salford Arms..."I wish he'd stop saying he's an artist" adds an angered local curator. Expect the ridiculous.

Not much you can say about Rory Mullen, except he seems off his head...but maybe, just maybe, there's a salient point behind it all. Who knows?

The reviews of Mullen's live show are stunning... "He's not that funny tbh" some punter in the Salford Arms..."I wish he'd stop saying he's an artist" angered local curator...

"Expect the surreal, expect the theatrical, maybe even expect the comedic" state the organisers of his Salford show at Caustic Coastal "Forget your Friday night art gazing, forget being cultured at the gal in your sharpest clobber, forget what you thought we do....Funnier than your one-liner artworks and not that funny instagram stories, funnier than Peter Kay and Dave Chapelle in a lift. You get the drift. What else are you gonna do at the end of April when the daffodils are all gone?..."

Mullen has tons of videos posted on his 'appreciation' website*, one which shows a weather man having a marital breakdown on air, another where he interviews a pea in a waste bin, and another 'live' from the snail racing championships complete with crap cardboard racetrack and interviews with the competitors. Very silly. Is it art? Is it comedy? Is it even surreal?

He can't be that out there can he? Find out when Rory Mullen performs live with Ric Stringer at the Caustic Coastal 'Fridge' gallery. There's only 75 tickets on sale, and it's only 2.73 entrance so book early!

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.

On 9th January at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, the judge allowed an eight day extension for those homeless people currently occupying the old doctor's surgery in Eccles. The case has now been set for the end of January, giving them an extra two weeks to prepare a legal defence.

Meanwhile this week, the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre, which is helping the Shelter, took delivery of loads of pairs of thick winter socks and around one hundred toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes donated towards its new Medical and Dental Surgery for the homeless and ex-offenders.

NEW OWNER CONSIDERS RESTORATION PLANS FOR LOWER BROUGHTON THEATRE

After Lower Broughton's 'at risk' Grade II listed Victoria Theatre was sold last year, there were fears that it would be pulled down for development but the Salford Victoria Theatre Trust has today announced that its new owner "has engaged with the group to seek out a way forward, even vowing to consider plans to restore it for its original purpose".

The Trust is now putting together a business plan and pitch to present to the owner at the end of the month, with a meeting planned with Salford City Council next month to discuss the theatre's future.

COMMUNITY GREEN SPACE CAMPAIGNERS JOIN DEMO OUTSIDE SALFORD CITY COUNCIL MEETING

Star date: 16th January 2019

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

Before a full meeting of Salford Council this morning, residents campaigning against development on green spaces in the city held a demonstration outside the Civic Centre.

Representatives of campaigns including from Campbell Road, Duncan Matheson, Walkden and Buile Hill Park then went into the meeting to hear City Mayor, Paul Dennett, say that the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was "protecting green belt and green spaces", after Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood had accused the Council of "throwing residents to the wolves of rampant development".
