    A CELEBRATION OF GLORIOUS GARDENS

    At BBC Gardeners' World Live Special Edition, this August

    Following on from the sell-out success of last month's first ever BBC Gardeners' World Spring Fair, which took place at Beaulieu in Hampshire, sights are now firmly set on a return to the NEC in August for the Special Edition of BBC Gardeners' World Live.

    In 2021, this key event features later in the gardening calendar than usual, running from August 26-29, with a host of outdoor features including inspirational Show Gardens and expert advice from much loved presenters Monty Don, Carol Klein and Adam Frost of the BBC2 programme, on the My Gardeners' World Stage.

    BBC Gardeners' World Live Special Edition will also showcase an incredible array of beautiful blooms and perfect plants to browse and buy, from quality nurseries in the Floral Marquee and Plant Village.

    Show Gardens will be packed with innovative ways to transform outdoor spaces and Beautiful Borders show that even the most compact areas can be transformed into an oasis.

    A brand-new House of Plants feature, in the centre of the Floral Marquee, will celebrate the joy of houseplants and how they can bring style to any space.

    There's lots for little ones too in the Family Gardening section, with ideas to get everyone involved from growing your own food to weaving willow and there will be toe-tapping entertainment from Marella Cruise performers at The Bandstand, with plenty of tasty treats to enjoy in the pop up BBC Good Food Market.

    SHOW GARDENS

    Glorious gardens will inspire and encourage visitors to have a go at home with plenty of great ideas to take away.

    What Lies Beneath, a collaboration between The APL and Professor David Stevens will give a unique eye-level cross-section of the foundations and underlying structures that underpin a great garden, giving visitors a glimpse on what lies beneath...

    The garden will give an insight into the important role of landscape companies and the landscaping process that is vital to a gardens' success but often invisible and misunderstood.

    On Your Bike by Hana Leonard with Armstrong Landscapes Ltd is inspired by cycling. The striking artistic vision will bring recycling, upcycling and cycling all together in one place.

    The Lilian Prime Garden by Darren Purdy, Sue Arthur and Derby College will offer a thoughtful interpretation of the journey that people who live with Multiple Sclerosis take to finding peace and happiness.

    Nature's Resilience, designed by Moska Design and Seedology, will celebrate the power of plants to heal, calm, awaken the senses, spark imagination and bring joy, with a space jam-packed with plants offering a host of therapeutic properties for the mind, body and soul.

    A VERY BRITISH AFFAIR: APL AVENUE

    Five APL Avenue Show Gardens, the size of a typical UK back garden, will take inspiration from quintessential^ British themes.

    Earthstone Landscapes Ltd draws on the drama of James Bond with a sleek, modern, sweeping design that focuses on creating a dazzling spot to dine outdoors in true Bond style.

    Gunns & Roses' design looks towards the British manufacturing industry to create a brutalist, contemporary space that uses herbaceous borders to soften large concrete blocks.

    Outdoor Creations will take the Great British Allotment to a new level with a garden bursting with tasty treats for humans and pollinators alike.

    TAW Garden Landscapes is inspired by woodland to create a secluded space with a nod to British drizzle in a dripping moss wall.

    Teasels Landscapes will bring the British coast to Birmingham with a beach garden including a pebble beach, upturned boat, driftwood and fisherman's hut.

    BEAUTIFUL BORDERS

    More than 20 Beautiful Borders will celebrate flower power with creative designs that demonstrate just how gardens, and gardening, can uplift the spirits, from mental wellbeing to biodiversity, community projects to inspiration for children.

    The designers of the Borders will show how plants are true multi-taskers, they help wildlife, bring communities together and can also be great to eat too!

    Hosting one of the largest floral marquees in the country, nurseries from across the UK will put on a dazzling display of colour and scent. Carnivorous plant nursery Shropshire Sarracenias will be exhibiting at the show for the first time, with a selection of their vast range of plants.

    Salford Arts Theatre

    In 1995, at a Macclesfield secondary school, two young people bonded over a passion for theatre and musicals.

    Their friendship has lasted out over almost three decades, and in 2016 – having found lives across the country and globe – they found themselves living back in their hometown at the same time.

    Although Laura and Holden had found a whole world of experience prior to their reunion, they were keen on reigniting the spark of theatrical passion they had shared in their teen years. With a wealth of credits to each of their names, their initial disappointment at the lack of ready opportunities for Northern based actors, writers and directors would soon turn to heightened enthusiasm as they set about forging their own path towards creativity.

    Northern Rep Theatre was conceived. A new company keenly focused on growing Northern talent and showcasing our stories.

    Following the bitter disappointment of postponement due to the pandemic, Northern Rep are thrilled to announce that The Greater Manchester Fringe Festival 2021 will see the world premiere of ‘Bysmal Boys, a brand-new play written by Laura Genders and directed by Holden Oak – the two founders of Northern Rep.

    Exploring the lives of Blue Watch, Macclesfield, the writing draws on Laura’s native background in the Silk Town and the stories she heard growing up in the Fire Brigade circles. Set against the backdrop of the strike action taken by the National Fire Brigade in 1977, this play discovers universal voices of all who work in the public sector and the desperation, elation and camaraderie found in their professional and personal lives.

    The play is running for three performances, from Wednesday 22nd September to Friday 24th September at Salford Arts Theatre. Tickets are available from https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/salfordartstheatre/bysmal-boys-performed-by-northern-rep-theatre-part-of-gm-fringe-2021/e-mpvexl or https://manchester.ssboxoffice.com/events/bysmal-boys/.

    Nineteen times TT winner Michael Dunlop is set to take centre stage at the 2021 Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show on October 9-10.

    Michael is the first rider to complete a lap of the most famous road racing course in the world in under 17 minutes, with an average speed of 134mph.

    He is also the last member of the Dunlop quartet who have dominated the dangerous and thrilling scene of motorcycle road racing for more than 40 years. Despite losing his uncle Joey, father Robert and elder brother William through the love of the sport, Michael continues to race and is currently chasing his Uncle Joey’s world record of 26 Isle of Man TT wins.

    One of Michael’s most famous wins - and probably one of the most remarkable chapters in the Dunlop story - came immediately after another family tragedy. Just hours after his father Robert’s death at the North West 200 in 2008, Michael and his brother William were out preparing their bikes for racing the next day. Despite protests from organisers, family and friends, Michael went out and won the North West 200 the following day. He suitably dedicated the win to his father and since then has firmly established himself as one of the greatest motorcycle road racers in the world.

    Fans will be able to hear from the man himself as he chats to TT commentator and former champion Steve Plater throughout the weekend. Catch the pair live on stage and in the GP Paddock on both Saturday and Sunday, where there will be signing opportunities and Q&A sessions too.

    Plans are in place for a full return of all the much-loved aspects of the show, including the multi-million-pound Bonhams Auction, wall of death, massive indoor and outdoor trade and autojumble and club stands. There’ll be bikes everywhere, live trials action and live music too. More details will follow and will be updated on our website:www.staffordclassicbikeshows.com

    Tickets are on sale now at an early bird price of £13 until October 4. Visit www.staffordclassicbikeshows.com or call 01507 529529 to purchase.

    Christ Church, Great King Street, Macclesfield

    Macclesfield has a huge history of music it was the home town of Ian Curtis and Stephen Morris of Joy Division, and Gillian Gilbert, who along with Stephen Morris was a member of New Order.

    A memorial to Curtis is located in Macclesfield Crematorium. Other Macclesfield acts to have gained recognition include The Macc Lads and Marion. Silk Brass Band, the Macclesfield-based brass band, won the National Champions of Great Britain title in 2003.

    The blues singer John Mayall was born here in 1933 and more recently, local band the Virginmarys has achieved national and international success. Chart-topping UK band The 1975 also partly come from Macclesfield.

    Curiously, despite having a rich musical heritage, Macclesfield has few cultural amenities.

    In 2004, research was published in The Times naming Macclesfield and its borough the most uncultured town in Britain, based on its lack of theatres, cinemas and other cultural facilities. This festival is part of an initiative to overcome this.

    The location: Christ Church, a redundant Anglican church in Great King Street, Macclesfield, Cheshire, England. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building, and is under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust and was in use until 1981 with a stained glass window behind the stage that will take your breath away.

    The festival is a non profit initiative working with The Christie Cancer Hospital, who are opening a centre in Macclesfield which has been delayed due to Covid. For more info in the new hospital https://www.christie.nhs.uk/the-christie-charity/why-we-need-your-help/what-we-are-fundraising-for/the-christie-at-macclesfield.

    Friday night:

    Headlining is the phenomenal Peter Hook & The Light, supported by Yellow Brain, San Pedro Collective, Suddi Raval, Leon The Pig Farmer & local Macclesfield rising stars Queen Cult.

    Saturday – full day of music:

    With I Am Kloots John Bramwell, Cabbage, Space Monkey, Sylvette, Dave Fiddler, The Pagans S.O.H, Bethlehem Casuals, local band Sinclair and M30.

    Sunday – full day of music:

    With Liverpool’s finest Space, Leigh’s finest The Lottery Winners, PINS, Manc funk SWJ Group, Kiziah & The Kings, Officers & Gentlemen, The 99 Degree and Cyrcles

    The Manchester Bike Show due to take place on 11th & 12th September 2021 has been postponed – again!

    Hopefully The Manchester Bike Show will now take place on 2nd and 3rd April 2022, at Bowlers Exhibition Centre, Longbridge Road, Stretford, Manchester, M17 1SN

    Organisers of The Manchester Bike Show said: "Once again find ourselves between a rock and a hard place with regard to running or postponing the show. On the first two occasions when the show was postponed at EventCity in March 2020 and March 2021 the decision to postpone was fairly clear cut and taken out of our hands on each occasion by both the government and the venue.

    "The latest decision to postpone was much less clear cut especially given the government’s decision to open up the economy on 19th July. The majority of the main manufacturers/dealers were booked in to attend on 11th / 12th September as were a good number of trade exhibitors and clubs, plus advance tickets were selling well and we were looking forward to a good show.

    "However, we have been contacted by a number of dealers informing us that they will no longer be attending the September show for two main reasons. Firstly against a background of rising Covid cases the dealers don’t want to put their employees at any greater risk than necessary and equally these same employees, who are mostly young, are reluctant to put themselves into that situation anyway.

    "Secondly there is currently a supply issue in both the car and motorcycle industry whereby the dealers have already sold out of the stock they were holding pre-pandemic and they can pre-sell any stock they can currently get their hands on, so there seems little point in going to all the effort of organising a stand with nothing to put on it. These dealers all assure me that new stock will be on the way by the end of 2021 and they will all be present when the show comes back to Bowlers on 2nd / 3rd April 2022.

    "We are well aware that we could have gone ahead irrespective of the withdrawal of key exhibitors but we are not prepared to sacrifice the reputation of the event for short term financial gain. Hopefully you will support us in this decision and we look forward to seeing everyone again at Bowlers in April 2022."
