Complimentary barge party for Heroes

Food from Taps, music from James Munro, plus some of the best beers around

Complimentary barge party for Heroes

We've got another exclusive party for Heroes coming up. It's on a Friday night – 1 July, it includes first-rate food and drink plus a set by an up-and-coming Manchester musician. And it's on a boat.

We've done a Heroes party on Dry Barge's boat before. There was more liquid on-board than in the canal. It's a miracle we stayed afloat.

This time the drinks will be supplied by the beer specialists at Other World Drinks, who represent a roster of interesting brews.

1Asx_HFood will be courtesy of Taps. This bar in the Great Northern is known by many as the place where you pour your own pints, here’s your chance to sample their excellent food.

Top drinks, top food, and ace tunes from James Munro who recently supported Ocean Colour Scene when they played Manchester. He cites Bob Dylan and David Gray as influences. We reckon he'll create just the right vibe with his acoustic set.

All this will be happening as we cruise the waterways of Manchester and Salford on Dry Barge's boat. For Friday night shenanigans, it will take some beating.

It's exclusive to 20 Heroes and their plus-one's.

If you'd like to come along (with a guest), just email emmag@manchesterconfidential.com with Barge Party as the subject before Thursday 16 June. We will send you full details on Friday 17 June if you have been successful.
