We are delighted to announce that Gabby Sanderson will be DJing at our annual Birthday Party, taking place on Friday 9th February 2018 at The Principal Manchester.

Our annual Birthday Party, kindly sponsored by Express Solicitors, will celebrate another great year of supporting community activity across Greater Manchester. The event brings together over 400 passionate and dedicated Forever Manchester supporters to celebrate another great year of helping local people do extraordinary things together.


Gabby Sanderson has recently returned to the UK after almost two years presenting drive time on iheartmedia’s (America’s biggest radio network) alternative station in Nashville ALT 97.5. Hanging out with Paramore, Kings of Leon, Chris Shiflett from the Foo Fighters and Sting was all part of her daily workload, plus DJing in LA, New York, Miami and Nashville. Prior to her move across the pond Gabby presented the Propaganda show on XFM and has spent many, many summers working as Ibiza Rock’s in-house reporter, resident DJ and presenter of Ibiza Rocks the Radio. Gabby has been a Propaganda resident DJ for five years and can be found spinning in the coolest music venues across the UK, plus festivals and Propaganda events in Nashville and LA. Gabby is now presenting the Propaganda show on the world famous Kerrang Radio, bringing the rock and roll party to the airwaves every Saturday night.

The compere and DJ has been sponsored by seventy7.



Guests at the Forever Manchester Birthday Party will be treated to a welcome drink on arrival, three-course meal, entertainment from community groups Forever Manchester has funded, an awards ceremony and a special guest DJ.
