Once there was a man who promoted the greater cultural status of Manchester. He contributed to Manchesters cultural output with Nightclubs, music festivals and record labels and he promoted Manchester through his journalism. He put Manchester on the cultural map.... a local Icon. But now he is gone and yet we still talk about Tony Wilson and his achievements, it seems like we are stuck in the past, but why? Is there anyone to fill Tonys shoes in Manchester at the moment? Is there going to be a new Manchester cultural resurgence and who will be involved? Join us over supper as we find out…
Who is the next Tony Wilson?
How can we spot them?
What qualities will they have?
Are we stuck in the past?
Are there great things happening in Manchester?
Where do we find them?
How do we cultivate more creative talent in Manchester?
Is Culture the best way to boost Manchesters status and economy?
As its Christmas we thought it might be nice to make a big deal about this event and put on some entertainment. Who knows we may find out the next big talent in Manchester!
