Salford Quays

3rd March 2023 - 5th March 2023

Come and join Senators Bela Arora, Ashi and Graeme Forrester for what promises to be a fantastic weekend in and around MediaCityUK and Salford Quays. An up and coming area which is home to both BBC and ITV and also The Lowry which has 2 theatres plus galleries with works by LS Lowry (former Man of Year, a competition organised by non-other than Manchester Junior Chamber of Commerce as it was then known) and modern artists in a landmark quayside building.

Friday evening will start with a relaxed 2 course meal at Marco Pierre White’s restaurant, Marco’s which is based in our hotel for the weekend the Holiday Inn, MediaCityUK

Saturday Morning will start after a leisurely breakfast when we walk a very short distance to The Salford University Production Studios. This is a unique opportunity for non-students to visit the media training facilities to see where tomorrow’s media stars are being trained.

After lunch at The Botanist we will make our way to the Marble Brewery on foot. Due to the more than anticipated number of people who have expressed an interest in attending this weekend we have had to change the Saturday afternoon event. This brewery has, since 1997  been brewing forward thinking and genre defining beer in Manchester. From the more tra

ditional cask beer brewed in the back room of the grand Victorian pub in Ancoats that serves as their spiritual home, to the contemporary craft beers currently being produced.

Saturday evening is the highlight of the weekend. We have arranged transport to take us from the hotel to the Emirates Old Trafford, Lancashire Cricket Club for a 3 course black tie gala dinner.

On Sunday we have the possibility of an optional private tour of the Imperial War Museum. Please register your interest when you complete your booking.
