In the wake of the riots, a sombre mood descended across the centre of Manchester, with shopper numbers down and the bars and restaurants looking less than their usual bustling selves. I therefore welcome the campaign for people to show their love to Manchester with the #loveMCR twibbon: http://twibbon.com/join/i-love-mcr-2 which you can add to your facebook profile.
Let’s get back to the beaming civic pride that this city’s inhabitants are famous for! I’m showing my love first of all by attending X Trax Platform 4 event this Friday in Castlefield: http://www.xtrax.org.uk/showcase_platform_4_2011_welcome.php
The event is FREE with a BBQ and drinks on offer from the perennially popular Dukes 92. The event features trip wire artists who’ll be suspended above the castlefield arena for our viewing pleasure. I love the sound of the ‘always drinking marching band’ too! Various shows are taking place over the weekend, so come and show your love!
