Counting Backwards is a new series of text-sound-performance events. It takes place on the first Thursday of alternate months. Counting Backwards takes place at Fuel cafe bar in Withington. The first event is on Thursday 3 June 2010.

Manchester Artists’ Bonfire

Manchester Artists’ Bonfire happens Friday next week 28 January. The perfect palate-cleanser for The Other Room and Counting Backwards the following week.

It now starts later than previously advertised with the burn happening at Islington Mill between 8-10pm and after party gig from 10pm to late.

The date for pledges of art to be burned has now been pushed back to Wednesday 26 January.

Submissions to

Include your name, a brief description of your practice, your website/blog address if you have one, your 250 word pledge, and details of the artwork to be burned in no more than 100 words with one image.

The bonfire is free entry, the gig afterwards is a modest £3 to cover costs of the event.

Obviously you can read the poster for yourself, but the performers on the night are:

  • Womb Collective
  • Paddy Steer
  • Matt Dalby

DJs are: 

  • Paddy Steer
  • Ana (Womb Collective)
  • Danny Saul
  • Martin Warm Widow
  • Neil Gnod

If you spend much time around Islington Mill you’re probably familiar with the DJs, and most of the performers will at least look familiar.

See you there.
