I need to speak out about the nonsense that has gone on round the Chapel Street area for the last 2 years (at least) The council has done naff all to support the frstival and turned to shite what is a well/was supported festival.
Anyway for at least the last 8 years this has been the best party in Salford on the early May Bank Holiday. From The Old Pint Pot to The Eagle or Rovers Return.
There is something sinister going on from this year (or from a pissed Salfordians/Owd’amer’s) which I can probably sum up in 2 parts:
1: the hub is now the trading estate and the festival no longer gives a fuck about the pubs on Chapel Steet (new oxford and the salford arms)
2: with the opening of middlewood locks the end of Islington Mill is imminent.
