There’s a disco happening at this big Tesco in Salford next month


A disco happening at a Tesco in Salford next month will bring a whole new meaning to the term ‘getting trollied.’

Part of the programming for 2020’s Not Quite Light festival, it will take place at the Salford Precinct supermarket on Friday 27th March.

Soundtracked by a host of international DJs, the music will be as varied and eclectic as the food they’ll be laying on.

Whilst it’s not necessarily typical to have food at a disco, as the saying goes: ‘when in Rome, do as the Romans do.’ And this is Tesco, after all. It would be rude if there was no food to go round.

The disco hopes to use music and food to bring together Salford’s many different nationalities under one roof as a celebration of the area’s cultural diversity.

The event is open to everyone and families are welcome. No alcohol will be served at the event, which will take place in the supermarket cafe from 7pm-10pm.

Whilst you don’t have to book, organisers are asking people to register on the guestlist to give them an idea of how much food to put on.

Other events happening as part of the festival include ‘Dining in the Dark’ at New Bailey restaurant and bar Firefly, night walks through the city, a dawn bike ride and guided blindfolded walking tours.

’We See What We Hear’ will have the audience blindfolded throughout its concert performance, which will be held in a secret location.

The up-and-coming regenerated area of New Bailey is the official partner of this year’s festival and will serve as the event hub for the weekend, which aims to show a different side to the city using all the senses.

All proceeds will go to Henshaws, a local charity that supports people living with sight loss and a range of disabilities to help them to build skills, develop confidence, help each other and look forward to a more positive future.
