The Freedom Gala. My Manchester swan song and the biggest thing I'd been involved in to date. We tried the impossible in turning GMEX into a club environment. I remember we hired what we thought were massive spheres but when we rigged them they disappeared into the vast roof. We also kind of forgot how bright it would become at 5am in the morning. Not a pretty sight... Still a legendary event with performances by M People, The Beloved, Marc Almond and an amazing set from the late Tony de Vit. One of those August Bank Holidays when we all worked for 4 days with practically no sleep.
