Hacienda DJ heading to Morecambe

Friday, 22nd August 2014

A DJ from the legendary Hacienda nightclub in Manchester will be appearing at a special Q&A session in Morecambe, followed by a one-off party in the town's Winter Gardens.

Mike Pickering, who signed James and the Happy Mondays to Factory Records, is the latest industry figure to take part in one of Creative Lancashire's Conversations in Creativity.

Mike is also a founder member of M People. After working at Factory, Mike went on to become co-director of Deconstruction Records and now works for Sony BMG with artists including The Gossip, Calvin Harris and Kasabian.

The Q&A session takes place at 4pm on Saturday 6 September at Hothouse, 13-17 Devonshire Road. Mike will be joined by fellow Hacienda DJ Dave Haslam.

The event will be hosted by journalist and author Dave, who DJ'd 450 times at the Haçienda and has since performed sets worldwide. He's currently finishing his fourth book - previous titles include 'Manchester England' (1999).

The Warehouse will bring the north’s distinctive dance culture and DJ history to the fore in the remarkable Winter Gardens. Hacienda legends Mike and Dave will evoke memories of Manchester's Acid House era. This special gig takes place from 9pm to 2am on Saturday 6 September at the Winter Gardens, Marine Road Central.

Tickets for the Warehouse are just £15 each, plus booking fees. For tickets and more information, visit www.skiddle.com and search for Mike Pickering.
