Gethin told me that The Salutation Hotel hosted the launch for the 1st Projector Series from a young creative media collective called, Blank Media Collective (BMC).
The guest artist on the evening was Kev Munday and a young french dude also got involved, that walked in the pub, having heard about the goings on at Dirty Works based in Afflecks Palace in Manchester.
Staring Joe Public & Random Strangers that wanted to get invoved and do what they do on the walls of The Salutation, the evening most definitely had a Manchester, chilled out summer vibe from all concerned.
Gethin told me that The Salutation Hotel is more than 250 years old and not only serves real ale, live bands / music nights, they also host regular evening sessions that include:
- Monday ~ Open Mic Nights
- Wednesday ~ Irish Music Sessions
- Thursday ~ Jam Night
- Weekends ~ Local DJ’s
