WEDNESDAY NIGHT saw hundreds of VIP guests celebrate the hotly anticipated DVD and Blu-ray launch of Spike Island at Manchester’s iconic Band on the Wall, at an event packed with music entertainment and Spike Island treats.
Xfm Manchester breakfast show host Tim Cocker and Producer Jim hosted a Q & A with the film’s writer Chris Coghill (who also played Uncle Hairy) and fellow cast member Adam Long (Little Gaz), who had the crowd in stitches revealing the secrets from behind the scenes.
The stage, hosted by Xfm’s Jo Good, featured live performances from hotly tipped Manchester acts The Quangos, The Minx and The Marivaux and a DJ set from Dots and Loops.
Drinks from the event’s sponsors Jameson Irish Whisky and Bulldog gin, plus piles of Spike Island merchandise from t-shirts to pin badges, all added to the atmosphere creating what was truly an event to remember.
Spike Island is out NOW on DVD and Blu-Ray.
Spike Island is Mat Whitecross’ nostalgic snapshot of 90’s Manchester, following five enterprising 16-year-old lads through 72 hours that shape their future, on the road to see The Stone Roses in their legendary Spike Island gig.
