A Flea Orchestra In Your Ear in Moston

WHERE: A Small Cinema, Miners Community Arts and Music Centre, Teddington Road, Moston, M40 0DJ

WHEN: Thursday 13th June 2013, 18.30


NOTES: "Stuart Maconie invites you to a special one-off night of words, music, film and dancing, with musician Jesca Hoop and The Smiths' Mike Joyce also on the bill.

Stuart Maconie is a journalist, author, raconteur, and BBC Radio 6 Music presenter. He will be reading from his all of his books, including recent publications "The People's Songs" and "Hope & Glory", and generally being quite witty about music and modern Britain.

Jesca Hoop is a Californian, Manchester-based singer-songwriter who counts Elbow, Tom Waits and Peter Gabriel as her fans. She will be performing an acoustic set of tracks from her back catalogue.

Mike Joyce was the drummer in the Smiths. That's all you need to know. He will be DJ-ing through the evening, filling all the awkward silences with indie classics.

In the other room, the beautiful volunteer-built Small Cinema, enjoy a handpicked selection of art-house shorts and local films - perhaps with a beer or hot toddy.

This will be a very special night inside an amazing venue. The Old Moston Colliery Bath House became a social club for local ex-miners and families after the pit shut. Closed for several years, it was brought back to life by enthusiastic volunteers without grants or funding. It now is home to the Miners Community Arts and Music Centre and the Moston Small Cinema project with Gallery Room, Café, Function Room and a 90 seat cinema.

All proceeds from the night will go to a much needed heating system for the venue.

So come and join us for the evening, it promises to be a great evening and anything goes on the night!

Food and Licensed Bar available."
