Chorlton Irish Club will host ‘an eclectic night of music and words’ next Friday as part of Kieran Fest, a celebration of the life of Kieran Crump Raiswell (pictured). Organised by his parents, the weekend functions as a fund-raiser for 42nd Street, with proceeds from each event going to the local charity to support their work with young people in the Greater Manchester. The music and poetry night, which opens the festival, will see performances from Salford post-punk band Emperor Zero, German indie-poppers Park ‘n’ Ride, Big Warm Babies and 15 Minute Gap, as well as words from local poet Antony Rowland, who won last year’s Manchester Poetry Award. The evening is just the beginning of a number of events taking place over the three-day festival, which also features a quiz night, a cricket tournament and a football day hosted by the teenager’s former club FC Bluestar.
