Flyer for Glenn's (Gay) Birthday Party held in the Gay Traitor bar at the Hacienda 1986. Featuring the one and only Avril 'A' (Paris is for Lovers) 1986. The place was hot, sweaty and full to capacity!
Avril A - Housewife/Superstar from Prestwich. Popular around the gay clubs at the time, but certainly not the type of act you would expect to find at the Hacienda! She was loved by many and had a big fan club, but made a few hi-nrg hits, the main one being 'Paris is for Lovers'. I still have Avril's original signed contract for the event somewhere ...
Love this! Avril was my aunt and I've been working through the mountains of stuff she left behind after she died, covering her bonkers career. I've actually uploaded some content here and made an exhibition: www.mdmarchive.co...'a':-cabaret-performer-and-legend-of-the-1980s90s-manchester-gay?fbclid=IwAR13SDc1kehVkuIVCobt2qw0Bl3fTB4BrI5fZEAFXkU_hXELE2M5z0xXUTk
I'd love to hear from anyone who knew Avril. I'm trying to piece together the story of her career and record this important history. If you knew her, loved her, ever saw her live, whatever - please, please get in touch! Thanks, Joanne
