These guys are the latest stars who were Made in Bury. We needn’t go all the way back to Sir Robert Peel, John Kay and Richmal Crompton to discover hot talent made in our home town – not when we have recent stars such as Victoria Wood, Suzanne Shaw, the Neville brothers, Danny Boyle and Elbow to gloat about!

This comedy night turns the spotlight on Bury at a major time – with the £350 million redevelopment of The Rock about to open this summer, following recent openings of a new Fusiliers Museum and Transport Museum, and major building and investment projects taking place across the town centre.

We’re proud to be Made in Bury!
