Following three successful years raising over £65,000 for The Christie we can't wait to bring you more Soul and Motown bands, artists and DJs from across the region to perform in several of The Printworks venues on Sunday 26 August 2018. And of course raise lots of money for The Christie! We have set ourselves a high target of raising £35,000 this year to push our total to £100,000!The event brings all the fun and nostalgia of Northern soul music and dancing to the streets of The Printworks whilst raising money for a charity close to a lot of people's hearts. Though the line up is yet to be announced, there will be performances from bands such as Stax of Soul and the Soul Temptations to soul DJ's like Dave Starr and Fay L Jones! Similar to last year, acts gracing the main stage will once again perform on the ‘Frank Byrne stage,’ named in memory of the Manchester legend who worked tirelessly to get the festival started and to make it a success back in 2015. We are also planning lots of mini soul events leading up to the Manchester Soul Festival at The Printworks which we will keep you updated on via facebook or The Printworks website. These events will be free but will be sure to get you excited for the main event in August.Further details of the event, timings and acts will follow soon.Finally, a big thank you for your contribution and donations. All proceeds of these donations will go directly to The Christie.
