Fenton Residents Back The Bid For Stoke on Trent 2021 City Of Culture

Local Fenton residents had an idea to do a “Fenton Backs The Bid” event gathering in the square in Fenton on the 22nd April 2017 at 12pm, essentially bringing as many Fenton residents into the square for a photoshoot and a chance to discuss the Stoke on Trent 2021 City Of Culture Bid.

We have video interviews with one of the organizers of the event Alan Gerrard and the Lord Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent Councillor Anthony Munday.  We also have video of  a speech made by the Lord Mayor on why Fenton, and others should back the bid.

Video From Funkbox 2nd October 2015 At Bidds In Longton

North Staffs TV was asked to film at the Funkbox night on 2nd October 2015 at Bidds in Longton.

After seeing the very sad news that The Place Night Club one of Stoke-on-Trent’s most iconic nightclubs is set to be demolished it made the organisers think about putting a night on, and what a night it was.  People got a chance to listen and dance to the sounds of 70’s,80’s, 90’s Soul & Funk, and Electro/Hip-hop.

The DJ line up on the night was as follows :-

The DJ’s – Main Room

Dj Trevor M (The Place Night Club & Rosie O’Briens)
Dj Oliver John (Reckless)
