Northern Souls is the workplace choir from DLA Piper’s Manchester office. About 40 work colleagues practice each week during their lunch hour. Everyone is welcome - it has become a great opportunity for people from all walks of life and from all areas of the business to work together.
Winners of an international singing competition in London, the choir are regular participants to the Halle Corporate Choir Competition held each Autumn.
Mandy is a Rising Star. She first came to notice in 2018 when she entered The Voice Kids UK – Will.I.Am said if he ever had a daughter he would want to be just like Mandy. Mandy recently performed at The Cheshire Fest 2019 the only young singer to be booked for performing on both festival days – and on both days she was asked to perform again as the closing act - which is unheard of! She has been asked to audition for a Netflix film and a new fantasy TV series but her heart lies in singing and is super excited to be singing at The Altrincham Festival.
Mandy has a new YouTube channel and would love it everybody subscribed to her channel: Mandy Scarlett Music. You can find many videos of Mandy singing on it (my current fave is Golden Slumbers – I wonder what yours will be).

We are a local dance school taking children from ages 3 1/2 years upwards teaching Disco/Freestyle and Latin American Dance.
We believe passionately in dance for all, and the fact that we have 2 teachers in class means we are able to offer integrated classes, allowing children with additional needs to attend with their peer groups.
Classes are available on most weekdays after school and at weekends.
We also offer after school clubs, wedding dance tuition, dance parties and discos.
Our Elite Performance Group is available to entertain at charity fund raisers, school fairs and local events.
First Class Free!
The Latecomers are an up and latecoming covers band from Manchester. We’re available for parties, weddings, pub gigs, bar mitzvahs and ritual sacrifices. We play covers from the 50s to the 00s (just) and under no circumstances should you leave a loaded buffet table unattended while we’re in the room.
The band was formed in the seventies by Chris Sievey who later went on to become Frank Sidebottom (The Timperley Bard) and died in 2010. The Freshies had a hit in 1980 with "I'm in love with the girl on Manchester Virgin Megastore Checkout Desk" With the recent media attention surrounding the Frank Sidebottom statue and subsequent successful film release about Chris (Being Frank), there has been a calling for The Freshies to do some live gigs. Barry Spencer and Rick Sarko, the two remaining members of the original lineup, have decided to respond to the call and get out and play. The current band also includes Chris Connelly and Paul Taylor.
Ideal Forgery are an unsigned Alternative Indie Band hailing from Manchester, UK. With raw vocal power, weaving lead cello lines and a gritty rhythm section, and with genre defining influences including The Courteeners, Sound Garden, Biffy Clyro, City And Colour and Dustin Tebbutt, their music entices listeners into a unique and diverse sound world.
Following the release of their ‘Debut EP’ in 2017 and several sell-out shows in Manchester’s leading music venues such as The Deaf Institute, Manchester Academy, The Ruby Lounge and Night and Day Cafe, the band released their single ‘Chase The Light’ in 2018, which saw them embark upon a tour across the UK, which concluded on the Isle of Man.
Currently in the studio working on their first album, the band is set to release a double A-side single, followed by more live dates and a subsequent UK tour in 2019
Hubster are a band formed by a group of Altrincham dads who wanted to rock out after the kids were in bed. Enjoy their eclectic mix of rock & indie classics.
