Factory Records made Manchester the city it is today.
But how exactly did this label transform the musical and cultural landscape forever? What made Tony Wilson and Alan Erasmus so different to others?
That’s what the upcoming exhibition at the Museum of Science & Industry is dedicated to discovering.
Focused on Factory’s formative years in the late seventies and early eighties, this fascinating showcase will carry guests through the label’s archives and catalogued items, as well as a series of interactive displays.
Artefacts related to Joy Division, New Order and The Durutti Column, and designer Peter Saville will also be available to view for the first time.
