City fans needed to mark Metrolink anniversary

25 YEARS: Manchester Metrolink's anniversary.

25 YEARS: Manchester Metrolink's anniversary.

Manchester Metrolink is calling on the song writing talents of City fans as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.

To mark the occasion, the transport network is creating 93 songs – one for each stop – and they need the help of local Blues to pen a tune for the Etihad Stadium.

The number of famous and memorable chants voiced at the Etihad and Maine Road over the years has proved City's musical talents aren’t only confined to the likes of Liam, Noel and Johnny Marr.

Now, Transport for Greater Manchester and The Bridgewater Hall are looking for 15-20 supporters to help with the ‘Tram Tracks’ project, which will celebrate 25 years of Metrolink and the Bridgewater Hall’s 21st birthday.

You don’t need any previous musical experience as you'll be guided through the whole song writing process by a member of the creative team.

If you do play an instrument, you can bring it along to the workshops.

Where possible, you will need to attend both sessions, which take place at the City Football Academy on the following dates:

  • Monday 19 June 7pm – 8.30pm
  • Monday 26 June 7pm – 8.30pm

The song will be recorded and uploaded to The Bridgewater Hall’s website and will form part of a soundtrack of the trams.

All participants will be offered free tickets to a concert at The Bridgewater Hall’s ‘Open Doors’ birthday weekend on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September, as well as to other selected concerts over the next year.

To be involved, please email cfa.media@cityfootball.com
