Belle Vue is known for generating huge crowds as one of Manchester’s most celebrated leisure hubs and the area will renew its reputation as the Sports Village opens its doors to two national centres, Speedway Stadium and The National Basketball Performance Centre.
The event will include a tour of the venues and interviews/photo and video opportunities with Belle Vue riders. It will take place at The National Speedway Stadium (M18 7BA) on Wednesday 23 March – refreshments will be served at 10am whilst the event itself will begin at 10.30am. New turf technologies from an artificial grass company in Perth have been installed here and experts are paying close attention their results. Many believe this to be the new turf standard.
Manchester City Council’s executive member for culture and leisure Councillor Rosa Battle will be available for interview, as will CEO of Belle Vue Aces David Gordon and Chief Operations Officer at Belle Vue Aces Chris Morton MBE.
A cheque will also be presented and will be shared between the Children’s Hospital Helipad Appeal and the Mercian Regiments Injured Soldiers Benevolent Fund. A sum of £1,222, which was collected at a charity football match between former Manchester City players and TV All Stars, will be presented.
