Following a hugely successful launch panel in September, FLOOR Music Talks returns on Thursday 15th June.

This instalment at Lock 91 will focus on Manchester's attitude towards the music scene, most notably building developments and how it affects the nightlife industry.

They will bring the the two often opposing worlds of music and property development together and ask:

“Whilst Manchester’s skyline is littered with cranes, it’s historic music venues are closing their doors. Are cities turning their back on the cultural institutions that made them in favour of soul-less luxury apartments, or is change inevitable? Can Manchester be the blueprint for a city where we break new ground without forgetting our roots?”

The panel will feature:

Nathan Cornish; Director at Urban Splash

Simon Binns; What's On Editor at the Manchester Evening News

Paulette Constable; Radio Presenter / DJ 

Verity Gardner; Director of Fat Out’s Burrow at Islington Mill

Dr Tom Gillespie; Partisan Collective cooperative member 

If you can't attend the panel, don't worry, we'll be streaming it live from the Skiddle Facebook page on the day.
