  1. Hacienda legend DJ Paulette will swap the turntables for an art installation titled ‘Homebird’ at The Lowry Sat 22 September – Sun 14 October. ‘Homebird’ by DJ Paulette is the third in The Lowry’s Edit series of gallery projects and collaborations. Legendary Manchester DJ Paulette will be taking over a gallery at the Salford arts venue and turning it into an immersive mood board of her life and the influences that have shaped her as a person and a performer. DJ Paulette has worked alongside big names of the Dance music world from Gilles Peterson and David Guetta, to Moodymanc and Mr Scruff. She has DJ'd at some of the world's most famous clubs including Hacienda, Space Ibiza, Privilege, and had a residency at IBIZA ROCKS (PIKES HOTEL) in 2015. In 2001 she was in DJ MAGAZINE's 150 TOP DJS and had her own coveted Radio 1 Essential Mix in 1998 Addressing race, sexuality, gender, art and music, DJ Paulette’s installation is a joyous but provocative glimpse into different aspects of her life and career – from the “Sheroes” who have inspired her, to the obstacles she has had to overcome. Visitors to the installation will journey through a specially constructed maze of ideas, experiences, memories and influences, providing a lens through which they can orientate their own lives. The heart of the maze will be filled with music. Paulette says of Homebird: In July 2014, The Lowry galleries were renamed The Andrew and Zoe Law Galleries in recognition of the couple’s £1m donation to the arts centre, which is a registered charity.

It’s a ramble through a relationship. Join him in this brand new comedy performance, complete with previously unseen footage.
  8. 'He remains one of the most entertaining observational comics on the block' Independent However dishevelled he may be, the Foster's Comedy Award nominee is also one of the best comics in the country. With a keen observational mind, Seann can spot the absurdity in everything and convert it to perfectly delivered stand-up comedy. You might have seen Seann on TV, but he’s something else live – pacing the stage, working the room and reducing crowds to hysterics. Even if he’d probably rather be at home watching Sky Sports News. “Walsh is this generation’s Dylan Moran” Time Out “Seann Walsh is young, attractive and blonde” (Broadway Baby, five years ago). This is actual quote! Blonde!!? Go and see him because he's blonde!?? Team captain of Channel 4 and E4’s Virtually Famous and regular on ITV’s Play To The Whistle. As seen on BBC1’s Live at the Apollo, ITV’s Jonathan Ross Show and Tonight at The London Palladium, ITV 2’s Celebrity Juice, Channel 4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Alan Carr: Chatty Man, Comedy Central’s Russell Howards Stand Up Central. 16+ Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee.

  10. After his last show tackled those well-known staples of light entertainment that are the British obsession with home ownership and the self-serving nature of most fundraising efforts, this time Henning’s having an unbiased look at immigration. He also wonders, if, generally speaking, people are competent. Luckily in his case this doesn’t matter as either he’s funny or he lives up to a national stereotype. It’s a win-win situation. Come along. Or else. Purchase Tickets Buy Sat Oct 22 : 8pm Henning’s latest TV appearances include presenting An Immigrant's Guide To Britain (Channel 4), Live At The Apollo (BBC2), Would I Lie To You (BBC1), Bake Off - Extra Slice (BBC2), Have I Got News For You (BBC1), The Road To Rio co-presented with Mark Watson (six part series for Dave and 70+ territories worldwide), various 8 Out Of 10 Cats & 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Room 101 (BBC1), Newsnight (BBC2), This Week (BBC1), Backchat (BBC3), QI (BBC2) and Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave, unsurprisingly).
