Salford… Love Club?
Fans of The Smiths rejoice, because Salford Lads Club is officially in the wedding business – with their first-ever wedding booked in for May 2021.
The culturally iconic building, made famous when used as the backdrop for The Smith’s inside cover for the album The Queen Is Dead, has been operating since 1904 (when it was a boys club only), acting as a recreational club for locals of the Ordsall area with both sports and exhibitions taking place at the club. But now, fans of the legendary club and the Manchester music scene can enjoy the space in a much more special way – with the club now fully licensed to hold weddings, civil partnerships and vow renewals.
There’s a number of rooms couples can choose from for their big day, too, including The Band Room, The Smiths Room, The Senior Games Room and The Concert Hall, with the venue hosting from 20-150 guests. Salford Community Leisure are in charge of weddings at the venue, with couples of course able to use organisers of their choice to make their day extra special.
Salford Community Leisure Weddings & Events Manager, Sue Bainbridge has said: “We’re delighted to bring this historic venue into our wedding fold,
“It’s one of the city’s most iconic buildings and unusual wedding venues, steeped in heritage, local social history and music folklore.
“With the current COVID-19 restrictions in place, the smaller spaces are ideal for up to 15 people.”
Packages start at £1250, with bookings being taken for January 2021 onwards – so if you fancy the ultimate Indie wedding, you might wanna snap up a date.
