Angela Matthews

In this episode of Forever Manchester Meets we chat with Hacienda Manager Angela Matthews. 
Angela was born and raised in Rhyl, North Wales and found herself obsessed with music from a very early age.
This led to forays to 'Eric's' in Liverpool and then onto Manchester to follow New Order, The Buzzcocks, Magazine and all her favourite bands while taking a degree at Manchester Met.

The first person Angela spoke to upon arriving in Manchester was Johnny Marr and the eventual realisation of not wanting to take on a 'proper' job as such.
Angela went to see Elliot Rashman, who, at the time, was 'Entertainments Officer' at the Met and also manager of an unknown Manchester band called Simply Red. From here Angela went onto gain invaluable experience in running every aspect of a nightclub and putting on gigs before going on to work at Manchester’s legendary Boardwalk and then onto being the manageress of the world famous Hacienda nightclub!
