The title International Art Festival Manchester sounds rather grand for a one night event but organisers make no apologies, as they have galvanised a unique happening, bringing creative people from diverse communities and backgrounds onto one stage...

"'A lot of different flowers make a bouquet'; and isn't that why a bouquet is so beautiful?" they ask "We believe 'Yes', and what else could be a better proof of this than Manchester, 'Britain's city of languages', where around two hundred different languages are spoken.

"...We gathered the most exciting acts from Manchester to put on a show about what Manchester means to them" they add "So if you like our city just as much as they do, your place is here!"

So, the International Art Festival Manchester happens on Friday 18th May between 7pm and 11pm at the Nexus Art Café, Manchester, opened by the Women Asylum Seekers Together Choir.

Also appearing are Lindsay Munroe, a local alt-folk musician, Ilona Krieva from Latvia who will be performing a drama piece, Joanna Brown, a singer/songwriter from Northern Ireland, Annie Morsi, a 23 year old cognitive neuroscience student and poet, Kofi Gyamfi, from Young Identity, a spoken word artist and instapoet, and Alicia Grace Swaby, a musician from Kent who is studying in Manchester.

They are all going to be creative about what being in Manchester means to them. And they'll be joined at the close by The Belly Dancing Society of the University of Manchester, which has members from Venezuela, England, Spain, Myanmar, Italy, Oman, Lithuania and Ghana.

All proceeds from the night will go to go to Child.org, a charity that is dedicated to give every child an equal chance in life.

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.

ECCLES HOMELESS SHELTER COURT CASE SET FOR END OF JANUARY

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".
