Salford lads club ready to rock again
Work to create a rehearsal space at the iconic Salford Lads Club is almost complete.
Newground Together provided £20,000 to the cost of the £43,000 project.
The club is famous the world over, not only for fans of The Smiths the world over who make a pilgrimage to the Grade II listed building on Coronation Street to mimic Stephen Wright’s 1985 picture, which featured on The Queen Is Dead album cover.
It was also where Graham Nash and Allan Clarke of The Hollies started their singing careers before they made it famous.
The derelict room has been completely gutted and refurbished and will soon be open for budding musicians to perfect their craft.
