From live music on a mega-bucks global scale, to live music of a more organic kind now.

Manchester venue Band On The Wall, which has been undergoing a big refurb since winning a £3.2 million Arts Council/Heritage Fund grant back in 2007, has announced two new recruits ahead of its relaunch in September.

First up Gavin Sharp, who worked for the venue a few years back in a programming role, will become co-CEO, while Mike Chadwick, best known for his presenting work on radio stations like KFM, Sunset Radio, Jazz FM and Smooth FM, will become the venue’s new music programmer.

The re-opened venue will combine a music programme with various educational projects involving local schools and colleges.
