Mad for it

A RARE chance to meet a photographer who captured the Madchester scene and took acclaimed pictures of Nirvana is on offer for free at The Dukes.

Ian Tilton is appearing at the Lancaster theatre next Monday (February 7) at the latest Wired In event.

He will discuss his life as a freelance photographer and show many unseen photographs of Nirvana as well as images from Manchester’s famous Hacienda club. Ian’s picture of Kurt Cobain was voted one of the best rock images of all time by Q magazine and is part of a stunning collection of portrait photographs taken from the late 80s and early 90s which include The Stone Roses, The Smiths and Guns N Roses.

Musicians Liar Liar, Turnstone, Rachel Parsons, Joanna Mangona and Mia Wilson will also perform at this free event.
