Thanks to everyone who made it down to see our film premiere of Helpyourself Manchester last night at the Klondyke club. We got over 100 people (Les ran out of beer glasses!) and were astounded by the levels of support and the atmosphere in the room. You all really truly reassured us that DIY culture is alive and well, not as a ‘style’, but as a functioning anti corporate way of thinking and organising.
All the people who bought dvd’s, donated some money, got us a beer, – we thank you!
— We didn’t take many photos, but here are a few.

Watching the film:
We want to also thank DBH and Dave Birchall for playing, they made the night extra special and we are glad to know such talented musicians, willing to promote DIY and ensure it stays alive.
If you have any photo’s of the night please send them to us, and if you want to use the Klondyke for anything just go down and ask, they really are very friendly.
The film will be screened in a few other places in the UK and abroad, which we’ll announce on here. and then in 2013 it will be available to watch for free online!
The DVD is also available, we’ll put it on here shortly. its got extras, a lovely cover, and the money helps us to carry on making films in the future and pays for production costs (tapes, dvd’s, cases… etc)
