When? Saturday 6th September (following Eastwood Town at home), 18:00 kick off, full time whenever.

Where? The Pack Horse, Manchester Road, Bury.

Who? Our very own Development Fund Band, Monkey’s Punk, live in concert, DJ and more to be announced.

Why? DF innit.

What? What? There ain’t no what.

Tickets, priced £5 per person, will go on sale this Saturday, 30th August, available from the Development Fund Stall and The Pack Horse pre match, with all proceeds in support of the Development Fund. In the unlikely event of any tickets remaining, sales will continue from the same locations pre match on Saturday 6th September. There will also be special promotional drinks offers on the night in addition to a raffle with some very special prizes on offer.

The Small Print: Due to fire safety limitations, tickets will be strictly limited to a total capacity of 200. Admission will be strictly by ticket only. There will be no cash admissions on the night.

From the official site, and on the forum.

Rumour has it there will be a special guest, but the powers that be remain tight-lipped at this suggestion. Despite my incessant cajoling, and water-boarding, they refuse to answer my direct questions, smile coyly, and tell me to wait and see.

So who is this mystery ‘mystery guest’? A brief brainstorming session in the pub over a pint of lime and soda (I’m on the wagon) reveals this shortlist:

Eric Cantona – having schmoozed with our fans at the filming of Ken Loach (not to be confused with William Roach who plays Ken Barlow)’s  latest film, Eric can’t get enough of our earthy charms. Forgoing his playboy lifestyle, he’s coming to Bury to rough it and pogo with the masses.

Bob Blackburn – The BPA chairman has kindly agreed to a question and answer session before the band take to the stage. Among other things he’ll reveal the truth about Spain. How he courted Rory Patterson. Stefan Brookster: the new Bigfoot? And how he really made his fortune.

Malcolm Glazer – A big music fan, Glazer was highly disappointed to miss Monkey’s Punk’s first ever gig, but refused to miss out this time. He’s flying over from Tampa especially for the event, and isn’t too concerned about the reception he’ll receive. “Music,” he says, “Conquers all.” His favourite band is The Strokes.

Non specific member of the Mancunian music royalty – The high cheek-boned, monkey faced member of a late-80s early-90s Manchester band will be in attendance, whose greatest legacy was a string of unoriginal fanzine article titles, as well as the almost hypnotic sight of men in the forties, wide-eyed and sweating, dancing like Bez every time one of their songs comes on.

Her out of Corrie – You know, the one seeing our player.
