The Smiths and Morrissey fan convention to be held in Salford - Manchester Evening News

Fans of The Smiths will gather to share their love of the cult band at a convention in the city where their most iconic photo was taken next year.

The Kings Arms pub in Salford - owned by The Housemartins and The Beautiful South musician Paul Heaton - will host an all-day celebration of the group and its frontman Morrissey on April 12.

The venue is just a couple of miles away from Salford Lads' Club, where the world famous photo used on the inside cover of 1986 album The Queen Is Dead was shot.

The event will feature the world premiere of new play Mr Smith, by critically-acclaimed playwright Colin Connor, which tells the tale of a Morrissey superfan.

Irish tribute band These Charming Men, who have won the approval of Morrissey and bassist Andy Rourke, are also flying in to perform before the night ends with a Smiths disco.

Beer fans will also be able to indulge in Smiths-themed vegan beers, which have been created especially for the event in a nod to Morrissey’s staunch animal rights stance.

Vegetarian and vegan food will also be included in the £30 price of tickets, which are available now from

Beautifull pub, for me it looks like a former important building in Salford, great Paul Heaton bought it,
even better to open a pub, and organises a Smiths event.

Big bow for Paul Heaton, hope the event will be a fantstic event, and maybe he picks up a guitar and plays along with these
charming man or just him doing some acoustic songs.

'and they say he's mentall' ... London 0 - Hull 4 ...
