Also at MIF17 is True Faith, a major new exhibition celebrating the legacy of Joy Division and New Order through the wealth of visual art their music has inspired.

The band will play alongside a 12-strong synthesiser ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music with Mancunian composer Joe Duddell conducting and providing the orchestrations.

The gigs will take place on Thursday 29 June, Saturday 1, Thursday 6, Thursday 13 and Saturday 15 July 2017 at 8pm. For more information, click here.

Pride of Sport 2016

This year’s star-studded awards, hosted by Ben Shephard, took place at Grosvenor House in London. The biggest names in sport came from all across the UK to celebrate the most phenomenal people in British sport. Olympian sprinter Iwan Thomas reported live via Facebook from the red carpet, capturing all the excitement of the evening.

The winners included the amazing Denham Elvin, a cycling enthusiast who overcame homelessness and now facilitates his favourite sport on drug-riddled estates around the south coast. The TSB Community Partnership Award was won by the Flamingo Chicks, a club for disabled children to experience the magic of dance while also providing support for their parents and carers. Equestrian Abdul Kareem Musa Adam was also honoured with an award. Having lost his entire family in Sudan and escaping Colonel Gaddafi’s child army, Abdulla now lives in the UK and is battling his post-traumatic stress disorder through his love of horse riding. Capping an incredible year, the mighty Team GB and Paralympic GB athletes picked up a prize for their outstanding performances in Rio.

All winners received their awards to rapturous applause, with audiences at Grosvenor House left feeling moved but also motivated by the incredible stories of the amazing athletes and sports enthusiasts.

Michelle Linaker, Head of National Events Pride of Sport said; “The Pride of Sport Awards recognise those who have made an outstanding contribution to sport and show how important sport is to our communities and daily life. There have been so many amazing stories and I’d like to pay tribute to all our nominees. Our winners this year are so inspiring and it’s our honour to be able to pay tribute to them through the awards.”

Paul Pester, Chief Executive Officer of TSB, said; “For many, sport is about being the best, but for me it’s about bringing out the best in people. Being a good sportsperson doesn’t mean being number one. It means living and breathing the values of resilience, fair play and working together in partnership. That’s why TSB is so proud to be a part of Pride of Sport – celebrating ordinary people right across the country doing extraordinary things in their local communities through sport. The winners and indeed all the finalists embody these values to the core alongside their commitment, dedication and sporting skill. They are a source of local pride for their communities and an inspiration to us all, right across Britain.”

We’ve enjoyed helping to  launch the The Wilbur and Niso Smith Foundation. (www.wilbur-niso-smithfoundation.org) This is a non-profit organisation dedicated to empowering young writers from across the globe, championing the adventure writing genre and the promotion of literacy. The brainchild of Niso, the foundation was born out of her love of adventure and adventure writing and her desire to share the transformative power of reading. The Wilbur and Niso Smith Foundation has created three annual awards to promote the work of the charity and adventure writing in general, The Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize and The Author of Tomorrow Awards. An expert judging panel including Grammy-nominated British singer, songwriter and record producer MNEK, Farrah Storr, Editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, and Kevin Conroy Scott, Creative Director at Tibor Jones & Associates, will sift through the entries to decide on a shortlist and final three winners. Those triumphant will be announced in April 2016.
