Martin Moscrop's Manchester 10K 
A Certain Ratio's Martin Moscrop is running the Manchester 10K on 20 May to raise money for Venture Arts, a specialist in the provision of arts and crafts workshops for people with learning disabilities. Running over 1000 varied workshops to over 100 people a year, they provide a high quality arts experience in a friendly, stimulating and inclusive environment, focusing on bringing out the best in every individual, nurturing talent and enhancing overall wellbeing and quality of life.

Martin says: "By sponsoring me for the Manchester run you will be directly helping Manchester people who have a learning disability to take part in meaningful, creative opportunities which otherwise they would be unable to do.

"Many have already donated generously to this very worthy cause. Any amount, no matter how small, will help me reach my target. Please help me raise money for this excellent cause by going to my fundraising page."

FAC 51 The Hacienda
The Names

Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.

Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
