MIF VIPs

With Sleuth away Gordo takes 17m pictures of Manchester International Festival’s opening night in the Velodrome and Albert Square

MIF VIPs

The opening gig of the Manchester International Festival was Kraftwerk at the Velodrome.

Gordo can vaguely remember something along the lines of ‘She’s a model and she’s looking good…’ Schofield is doing the review but Gordo tagged along with him as he felt he was in need of a three hour sauna, particularly the standing up part.

Two very fit ladies came and stood next to Gordo. Gordo had to take a picture, they turned out to be Kathryn Poots and her pal. Kathryn is the wife of the Festival Gaffer Alex, who has done, along with his staff, a fantastic job.

The deadly duo decided that the best place to watch the spectacle was at the back, on the rails above the highest part of the track, it was also a good spot to watch Manchester’s glitterati as they were walking past in all their finery.

Two very fit ladies came and stood next to Gordo. Gordo had to take a picture, they turned out to be Kathryn Poots and her pal. Kathryn is the wife of the Festival Gaffer Alex, who has done, along with his staff, a fantastic job. Gordo was in the right place for this gig, clearly.

Three hours later, Gordo has lost two and a half stone. Those cyclists must like it hot (see Schofield’s editorial for the details). Gordo, along with his fellow VIPs, was bussed over to the party on Albert square.

Gordo would love to tell tales about Jo ‘the jeweller’ Bloxham and her clitoral piercing jewellery along with the fact that she has asked Tom for a very special present for her birthday this year. She wants her windows cleaned. Blimey.

However, Schofield is screaming for copy, so Gordo will have to cut it short, apart from saying that this was one of the best opening parties he has been to in a while. As you can see from the pictures below.

Like a black hole of mediocrity, never have so many talentless liggers gathered in one place. It's a wonder the pressure didn't cause the Velodrome roof to cave in.
