There’s a chance to re-live the heady days of baggy when a mini music festival comes to Halton during the Easter weekend.

The Select Security Stadium is staging Mancholiday on Easter Saturday, March 31.

It’s a celebration of the 90s Madchester era with Resurrection, the
band described by Mani from the Stone Roses as “Still the best tribute to the Stone Roses” and the brilliant Mondays tribute band Happy Mondaze.

The Stone Roses have a historical link to Halton having played Spike Island with and both The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays having entertained at The Queen’s Hall.

It is also an opportunity for local acts to show what they can do.

There will be two stages, with two great local bands Factory and The Odds joining the headliners on the main ‘Sports Hall’ stage and an acoustic stage in ‘Legends Bar’ featuring several great acoustic acts – Catherine Hardman, Beth Woods, Gareth Heesom, Greg Oldfield, and Strangers to get you in the mood from 4pm.

Little Indie Night DJ’s playing all the biggest indie tunes in between bands.

For those who want to watch the big Anthony Joshua v Joseph Parker fight on the same date, the Stadium will be screening the fight after the main bands finish around 10pm to round off the event.

Tickets are currently still available at the early bird price of £10 from the Stadium, 0151 510 6000 or from
