Saturday night saw old chum Keith and I travel over to Shaw, just across the M62 from Rochdale where I lived as a child for a few years. Our visit was to a great little threatre called Playhouse 2 which is run by a charitable trust. We have been before, indeed both visits have been to see Snake Davis, former saxaphone player with M People. His concert this time was with a new venture/group called Snake Strings i.e. Snake and 4 talented classically trained string musicians.
A good night was had at this delightful little threatre run by volunteers and which we came across quite by chance a couple of years ago whilst trawling for a reasonably local venue to see the Snake Davis Band. This little gem of a voluntary enterprise is well worth a visit aand the folks running it are so freindly.
