BBC6 Music, Radcliffe & Maconies last broadcast of 2013 live from our Vintage Bar Manchester Christmas Market.

This was probably one of the highlights of the year. BBC6 music chose to broadcast from inside the pop up Vintage Bar we were running outside Selfridges ,Exchange Square. This was Radcliffe & Maconies final show of 2013. It was a great day with lots of celebrity guests popping in for interviews.

Guests include: Poet Simon Armitage, New Order’s Bernard Sumner & Stephen Morris, Actress Maxine Peake, Jimi Goodwin from Doves, J Wilgoose Esq of Public Service Broadcasting, and live music from Tim Burgess and Mark Collins of The Charlatans and The Unthanks!


This year was busier than ever, and very pleased to say was one of the driest Christmas Markets Ive ever known.

We are pleased to announce along with raising money through servings of Chilli juice, wishes bought for our Wishing Tree over Christmas and the the money raised by Mango Rays staff running the 10k Salford Charity event we managed to raise over £2500, which we have donated to Born Again Childrens Orphanage in Mombasa Kenya and to Macmillan Cancer Support.
