In the evening an event was held to celebrate 21 years since BECTU was formed by the amalgamation of ACTT and BETA.

But this is Manchester

The Haçienda is 30

On 21 May 2012 the Haçienda will be holding its 30th birthday party.

Unfortunately I won’t be able attend.

However, I did go to the Haçienda in the early 80’s, when club attendance was somewhat sparse (you’ll know what I mean if you’ve seen the film 24 Hour Party People).

Happy birthday, Haçienda!
