Thank you Ted for last week’s blog about the innocent band. It got me thinking that the Madchester innocent music club has been a wee bit quiet of late. To make up for it, I’ll be sampling smoothies at Summer in the Park in Manchester this weekend. I’m really excited as the event combines my favourite things; music and food and drink. I’m even told there will be a few beards, delightful.
Check out the brilliant line up which includes Manchester favourites I am Kloot and The Earlies, and a couple of personal favourites of mine Stephen Fretwell and Liam Frost. I’m also looking forward to catching Lucy and the Caterpillar (pictured here, isn’t she cute?).
food and drink
On the food front, the region’s best producers will be making an appearance and there will be food from Manchester’s yummiest restaurants such as Marmalade. Visit Cup, a lovely new addition to Manchester’s Northern Quarter, if you want to quaff one of our smoothies. Or if you fancy a spot of tea and cake you can try the coolest brew in town, Mr Scruff’s Make us a Brew.
The Travelling Band, winners of the Glastonbury New Talent 2008, will be making an appearance too.
So what are you waiting for? Bagsy your ticket and we’ll see you there. Just make sure you pop over to the innocent stand to say hello.
