Sunday 26th August is the date of the fourth annual Manchester Soul Festival. The fun and the music will be focused in and around The Printworks, an entertainment complex in the city centre and all profits from the day will go to the Christie Hospital, the largest cancer treatment centre in Europe.

Over the last three years, the festival raised over £65,000 for The Christie, but this year they want to raise a record-breaking target of £35,000 to take the total raised to a huge £100,000.

The full line up will include a performance from Manchester’s party band, Stax of Soul. Other acts include Blank Cheque, who released their EP ‘Times Have Changed’ back in February this year, Soul Temptations, and Mississippi Soul Man, plus KFM radio presenters DJ Dave Starr and Paul Kidd.

Venues within The Printworks complex will also be offering food and drink deals throughout the day. Entry to the Festival is with a wristband; this ensures a discount within the various venues. It’s suggested that there’s a minimum donation of £5 for the band.

The motto behind the festival is simple; the aim is to lift the fundraising amount ‘higher and higher’ as there ‘ain’t no target high enough’ for this year’s festival!
