Manchester. Madchester. Whatever you call it, you can’t deny the Atmosphere is buzzin. By now, your friends and former classmates may be Half The World Away. Your parents may view you leaving for Uni as Grounds for Divorce, wondering if you’ll study or give in to Temptation and blow your entire student loan on Cigarettes and Alcohol. Fret not parents. Sometimes, as a student, Money’s Too Tight To Mention but everybody knows The Key, The Secret is to work hard so you can Rule The World and make a Wonderful Life.
Please don’t worry before you even Step On our cobbled streets. This is my home, The Only One I Know, so I’m a tad biased but to me, Manchester really really does Live Forever. There’s always something to do, some fun to be had even if you have to Sit Down. And when it’s dark outside There Is A Light That Never Goes Out in this great city.
You may be feeling homesick now but you’ll soon feel better. Manchester will Galvanize you so that before long you’ll feel like a Fallowfield Hillbilly. You may worry that you’ll struggle to make friends and be Alone. Worry not. I’ve been All Around The World and I’ve seen the World In Motion but I have never met so many lovely Stars in one place. Making friends is easy here. We are a Sound bunch and there is always Something To Talk About.
You may not Catch the Sun regularly in this city of ours especially on a Blue Monday but Some Might Say that regardless of the weather, in Manchester, Everybody’s Happy Nowadays. Make sure you have a brolly and invest in some good waterproofs. You will need them as Northern Skies require Patience. Once you’ve been soaked through to your underwear by Cold Rain you’ll quickly come to respect our most accurate local weather forecasters.
Manchester Met will Set You Free. We will never Shoot You Down because here Dreams Never End and for most of us this is Not A Job or merely a means of Stayin Alive. We have Heart & Soul and seeing you all succeed and keep Moving On Up so you get out in the world and Shine is what we live and are here for.
Welcome to Manchester. Your future starts here…..
