Forever Manchester’s online auction raised £1,400 for ‘An Evening with Noel Gallagher’ at Salford Lads Club.

This truly unique in-conversation event for Salford Lads Club will take place on Friday 25th October 2019, presenting a very rare opportunity to see Noel in conversation with an intimate audience.

With space for just 150 people, perhaps it will come as no surprise that this unique fundraising event with Noel Gallagher originally SOLD OUT in just a minute!

With the kind permission of Salford Lads Club, Forever Manchester Ambassador and event organiser Alison Bell kindly donated the last 3 pairs of tickets for Forever Manchester to auction online.

A pair of tickets were up for grabs to each of the top 3 highest bids and this generated a fantastic £1,400 to support the work of Forever Manchester.

All the money raised from the auction will go towards helping Forever Manchester to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester.

Noel Gallagher recently released his latest EP titled ‘This Is The Place’, the title borrowed from Tony Walsh’s epic Manchester poem which was written for Forever Manchester.

We would like to thank Alison Bell for her kind donation and to everyone making a bid, and congratulations and thank you to each of the three most successful auction bidders for their brilliant support.

We hope you thoroughly enjoy ‘An Evening with Noel Gallagher’ at Salford Lads Club.

Noel Gallagher has been one of the UK’s most loved and successful songwriters for over a quarter of a century. Since his early days in Manchester – where he wrote the first two Oasis albums Definitely Maybe and What’s The Story – Noel has been awarded multiple prestigious accolades, including two Ivor Novello Awards, NME’s Godlike Genius Award and the Q Icon Award.

His band – Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – first emerged in 2011 and released their eponymous album that year, which went double platinum in the UK and has sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide. Since then, Noel has toured the world relentlessly, encompassing landmark open air shows and festival headlines, performing songs he has written and released over the past three decades.

Noel is always a witty and engaging interviewee – sometimes controversial – but never ever dull! Salford University’s Associate Dean, Kirsty Fairclough will be asking the questions on stage at the iconic venue. Kirsty will be speaking to Noel about his incredible music career in front of an audience of 150 and for the second part of the evening there will be a Q&A, where Kirsty will be reading out selected questions from members of the audience to ask Noel.
