Join Andy Spinoza in conversation with BBC Radio Manchester Presenter Eamonn O’Neal at Altrincham Library for an event to celebrate the Festival of Libraries, after his archive of media and memorabilia has recently been acquired by the new British Pop Archive at John Rylands Library and Research Institute.

Andy moved to Manchester from London at eighteen and never looked back. An early member of the Haçienda, he reported on the city’s music scene for the NME and The Face. He founded alternative magazine City Life in 1983 and spent ten years as a gossip columnist for the Manchester Evening News. As boss of his own PR company, he promoted the dynamic post-industrial Manchester throughout the 2000s and 2010s. Married with three grown-up children, Andy lives in Stockport with his wife, Lynne. Join us for this exciting in conversation event to hear from Andy and how he’s been inspired by Manchester.

Please note this event is in partnership with Manchester University Press and Andy’s book will be available for purchasing and signing by the author on the night.
