Film about Manchester's history of dance music premieres this weekend

A new film about Manchester's proud history of dance music gets its premiere in the city this weekend.

You may think you've heard everything there is to say about the subject but Manchester Keeps on Dancing wasn't made by a local filmmaker

It's been made by Javi Senz, from Madrid, who shot the documentary in his spare time, whilst employed by Manchester City FC.

The premiere comes at a time when when one of the city's oldest and best-loved clubs, Sankeys, has just announced it's closing its doors for good.
