We understand that there is more to life than music, art and festivals on Chapel Street – admittedly not much, but still. At Sounds…, for the last couple of years we’ve had a selection of food available in the Islington Mill courtyard, and it’s always gone down a storm, so this year we thought it would be a good idea to offer a little bit more of a selection across the board – because, no matter how hard you try, a couple of pints and a Parenthetical Girls set doesn’t provide anywhere near enough nutrition for you to get by.
Obviously, much like the musicians that play SFTOC every year, we were keen to get a good amount of variety in our bookings, which means we have the likes of Fire & Salt BBQ stoking their coals alongside Food by Kim’s vegan and vegetarian delights, as well as a Full Hog Roast and even a cake sale from our friends at the Women’s Institute. If this – and, of course, our wide selection of musical delicacies – sounds of interest to you, tickets are still available at the price of £18 from Skiddle here:http://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/Manchester/Islington-Mill/Sounds-From-the-Other-City-2013/11799072/
So, here’s our big menu for SFTOC -if you’re feeling peckish, look away now…
