The Slow Readers Club have announced a special album preview listening party for their upcoming album: Knowledge Freedom Power, hosted by BBC Radio 6 Music’s Chris Hawkins. The event will take place in the event space at the National Trust’s stunning new Castlefield Viaduct Sky Park in Manchester on 16th February 2023. 

The band will be joined onstage by Slow Readers Club fan and Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, as they listen through each track and discuss the story of the new album. 20 competition winners and selected press will make up the audience, with a Q&A taking place at the end of the listening party where the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions to the band, Chris or Andy. Fans can enter the competition by pre-ordering the record from the band’s online store HERE

In order to raise charitable funds and to commemorate the occasion, the band will create a limited edition TSRC X Castlefield Viaduct t-shirt, which they will sell at the event and on the band’s online store. All profits will go to the National Trust’s Castlefield Viaduct fund, to support planning a greener future for Castlefield Viaduct which will benefit the great city of Manchester and everyone who visits, lives or works here 

The Slow Readers Club also recently added a very intimate show at The Met in Bury as part of Independent Venue Week, which quickly sold-out.
