sumitted by Kate Day, director of MCDC
Hopefully one of us has mentioned at some point that MCDC features in the 1981 classic serialisation of Brideshead Revisited? In fact a drunken Sebastian Flyte crashes his car into the front of the building, only to be arrested by the rozzers on Copperas St! Here’s the Youtube link – the crash happens around 21 mins.
Apparently in 1981 Manchester was a cheap place to film so the series producers (Granada?) used the NQ as a location. We think that the club that Sebastian & mates get sloshed at is probably filmed at Band on the Wall.
Absolutely thrilled to discover The Complete History of Drinking in the Northern Quarter project this week, http://www.northernquarterstories.org. Keen to discover more about them and see where our projects crosses over, more about this later..
