An Audience with Nigella Lawson: The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Matthew Forrest It’s hard to believe that 20 years ago, one of the nation’s favourite food writers Nigella Lawson had her first book published How to Eat: Pleasures and Principles of Good Food. The food bible changed not just how we cook but how we view food as well and has been a staple of bookshelves and kitchens across the ...

An Evening with Eric Cantona – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Matthew Forrest A thunderous standing ovation greets Eric Cantona as he arrives on stage and he hadn’t uttered a word at this point. Such is Cantona’s presence that he can control a room with a mere hand gesture, a simple look, not that he’ll need to use these skills as for the next 45 minutes he is in the ...

Jon Ronson’s Psychopath Afternoon- The Lowry, Salford
