Salford Lands Royal Variety Performance

THE Lowry Theatre on Salford Quays has been revealed as the venue for this year's Royal Variety Perfomance, after Bolton comedian Peter Kay let the cat out of the bag.

Kay appeared as a guest on Gordon Burns' Sunday morning BBC Radio Manchester show to talk about tickets for his latest run of stand-up gigs, but also said he was set to host the bash 'in Salford' at the end of the year. Kay also revealed details of the show, which takes place on December 5, to The Bolton News.

“I am made up to be hosting it again. To do it once was amazing, but to be asked back to do it again is mind-blowing," he told The Bolton News.

“I have been told this is the last one that the Queen will be attending, so it is even more special for me.”

Salford has also landed the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards, which will take place at MediaCity on December 22.

There will be two weeks of events at MediaCity in December, called Celebrate Sport.
