Venue :

“The Miners Community Arts and Music Centre was a social club on a working class estate in North Manchester until it was left and neglected. We were established in 2011 and it is a family run Community Project. Over the last 3 years we have totally refurbished three quarters of this building which was an eyesore. Our aim is to provide a local multi functional building that will bring the local Community together for all aspects of socialising activities and a safe haven for the youth of today. There is space for local bands to rehearse and local artists to exhibit their work, there is also a community cafe.”

The festival organisers wanted to do the event at a venue that is part of the community.
