A new exhibition, opening later this month at the Science and Industry Museum, celebrates the region’s most influential record label. Tickets are available now for Use Hearing Protection, which charts the early years of Factory Records (1978 – 1982). Visitors will be guided through the story of those pre-Haçienda days, exploring how post-industrial Manchester allowed the company to spearhead innovation in music and design. It was due to open last year but the organisers have used the additional time to expand the content of the show. So, there are plenty of things to see – and below are just five of the best.
Sat 19 Jun - Mon 3 Jan, 10am-5pm (Wed-Sun), Science and Industry Museum, Liverpool Road, Castlefield, Manchester, M3 4FP, Tel: 0330 058 0058, £8, £6 (Conc.), Under-12s free
