Join us for a Life Of Smiles. It's a packed evening.

7pm. We discuss the life and times of counter cultural drug dealer legend (and Manchester Lad); Mr Alston 'Smiles' Hughes (Operation Julie) One time supplier of 90% of the UK's LSD.

'Smiles' is joined on stage, for the first time, by Undercover Cop DI Neil Woods, smasher of the Burger Boys - Birmingham, Smith's -Nottingham, and other violent dealers. Locking up gang members for over 1000 years. Stopping the drugs trade for 18 minutes! Cost to the prison complex ? It's in billions!! Neil campaigns  for the legalisation of all drugs, this war cannot be won, just weaponised.

Psychedelic historian Andy Roberts blesses us with his presence, other guests to be announced.  

Then,  roll back the carpet and celebrate the life of our pal Mr Steve Cole.  Live music and the choice of his favourite DJs.
