Catch up

I’ve been slacking with posts recently. So in order to bring you back up to speed, here’s a photographic diary of Gone Out’s August and September so far.

11.08: Manchester Carnival, Alexandra Park, Moss Side

Partying to deep and soulful house at the Community tent.

12.08: Olympics Closing Ceremony, my flat

My housemate’s friend made us some In The Ghetto cocktails while we watched the Spice Girls. I remember Amaretto and Cava being part of the drink, but that’s it. Oh, and the lovely way he pronounced ‘ghetto’ in his Irish accent.

18.09: Vinyl of Fertile Ground’s ‘Seasons Change’, my friend’s flat

A friend introduced me to this when I visited her for a catch up. A fantastic set of soulful songs with a timeless feel. Pick it up here.

27.08: Leeds Carnival, Potternewton Park

Get me some chips and ting!

A beautiful evening watching the artists on the main stage.

27.08: Louie Vega, Hard Times 19th Anniversary, The Warehouse, Leeds

It was an interesting evening. Vega played a crowd-pleasing set of soulful, deep house and disco. Plus, erm, hard house.

2.09: Somewhere in the middle of the UK

On the train back from London. Not exactly a weekend to remember so it was nice to see such a beautiful sunset on the way back to Manchester.

08.09: A family friend’s wedding, Netherwood Hotel, Grange Over Sands

The beautiful 1800s country house where the wedding was held and I was lucky enough to stay there.

Some vintage finds on an early morning walk into the village of Grange – a linen and 55 per cent silk Jaeger short-sleeved jacket and a unused navy clasp bag with a lovely ornate strap for a total of £7.
