An ex-miners washhouse turned community arts and music venue in Moston is looking for people to get involved in all aspects of the organisation. From creative folks who can dream up and run projects, friendly faces to serve brews to the lovely folk who visit, to trustees to help set the strategic direction - the Miners Community arts and Music wants you involved. By becoming part of the Miners you will be part of an award winning volunteer team who share a common goal to run a creative and social space where people can work together for the benefit of the community which built on its long history of solidarity and cooperation spanning from its days as a working Men’s club to its current life as a vibrant and inclusive community space.
There is space for local bands to rehearse, local artists to exhibit their work, large spaces for community gatherings and social events, a community café serving up proper hearty food, a community radio station, a fully functioning small cinema with decadent retro seating and they are currently building a recording studio! It’s also lucky enough to have a legion of celebrity visitors and supporters such as Maxine Peak, Steve Coogan, Ken Loach, Smug Roberts and Steve Evets – popping in for a butty or supporting an event!
If you’re interested in being involved then you can join them at their volunteer open evening on the 6 September 2018 from 6.30pm - there’ll be free food, music and the evening will be hosted by none other than Smug Roberts himself.
