Pie at Night: In Search of the North at Play
Pie at Night: In Search of the North at Play | Stuart Maconie
7 posts | 1 read | 2 to read
Factory, mine, and mill. Industry, toil, and grime. Its manufacturing roots mean we still see the North of England as a hardworking place. But, more than possibly anywhere else, the North has always known how to get dressed up, take itself out on the town, and have a good time. After all, working and playing hard is its specialty, and Stuart Maconie is in search of what, exactly, this entails, and what it tells us about the North today. Following tip offs and rumor, Stuart takes trip to forgotten corners and locals haunts. From the tapas bars of Halifax to the caravan parks of Berwick Upon Tweed, from a Westhoughton bowling green to Manchester s curry mile, via dog tracks and art galleries, dance floors, and high fells, Stuart compares the new and old North, with some surprising results. "The Pie at Night" could be seen as a companion to the bestselling Pies and Prejudice, but it is not a sequel. After all, this is a new decade, and the North is changing faster than ever. This is a revealing and digressive journey and a State of the North address, delivered from barstool, terrace, dress circle, and hillside."

Cinfhen What‘s your typical Friday night dinner??? 1w
arlenefinnigan @Cinfhen I'll be honest, on Friday evening I clean the house and Andy picks up something no-cooking-needed from the supermarket! But when we do go the chippy it's either salt and pepper chips or chow mein. I go for the exotic option 😉 1w
Cinfhen Aren‘t you just a party animal?!?! And super adventurous 😉😘 1w

Been feeling a lot of #DejaVu at work. Need a break.... #SeptemberDanes @Kalalalatja @Cinfhen

Kalalalatja I think a lot of people can relate to this feeling! (I‘m unemployed at the moment, but I‘m pretty sure I‘ll have days that feel like that 👆 once I get a job) 12mo
