Bez and his bust
Among the other guests were patrons and friends of the museum, scientists, professors and engineers from the local Universities, budding enthusiasts and even Bez from Happy Mondays, but more on him later. The soiree was a chance for the festival's organisers to offer a sneak peak at some of the exhibitions due to launch at the festival, as well as a chance for the region's geek community to sample local Ales, pies and music courtesy of Elbow. Any excuse!
Elbow on the decks.
