With the videos set to record Coronation Street, the good and the great turned out for the Manchester Society of Architects’ (MSA) annual dinner, which took place in Ian Simpson’s Beetham Tower last Friday night.

A tremendously boozy black tie affair in the Hilton at the base of the skyscraper, the bash was dotted with local heroes such as Roger Stephenson, MBLA’s Ian Beaumont, Rachel Haugh from Ian Simpson Architects, the HKR crew and Gill Robinson from the firm whose name just keeps on growing, Stride Treglown Chapman Robinson. MSA’s outgoing president Ian Bright took the opportunity to fire off a few farewell salvos, hitting out at ‘cheapskates’ 3DReid for not taking a table and at recruitment agencies in general (‘greed-ridden parasites’). A splendid evening, topped off at around 2am when Astragal found himself propped next to the moonfaced psychoanalyst from Big Brother in a nearby ‘club’.
