a fantastic frank Sidebottom Christmas party

we are now in the early stages of planning what could well be the last and final frank Sidebottom statue fund raiser to be held in a manchester city centre venue, ticket price will be £11.37 plus booking fees

local bands will play, with fingers crossed a headliner but we want this night to be for frank side bottom fans, rather than the headliner fans

we are going to limit the number of tickets to just 200 on a strictly first come first served basis

at this stage would you like to come to <franks fantastic christmas party>

do you have any ideas on what you would like to see, or what you would like to take place? you can comment on the frank sidebottom state facebook page found here -> click

we are now so close to getting the frank sidebottom statue commissioned and to stand tall in a prominent place in timperley village, a place where frank can watch the timperley sunset forever

after all Christmas is really fantastic

being frank - the chris sievey story

on . Posted in news

Being Frank is a feature length documentary film, telling for the first time the true story of the life and work of artist Chris Sievey.

Made with exclusive access to Chris' personal archive and the co-operation of his family, the film will explore the astonishing life and career of this most maverick of artists from the point of view of the people who knew him best.

Being Frank will take the audience from Chris' earliest days as a teenage singer/songwriter cutting demos at Apple, through the Punk-Pop heyday of his band The Freshies, to the birth and hilarious career of his most enduring creation, Frank Sidebottom.

Many were fans of Frank Sidebottom, but few were privileged to know the man behind the mache. This is a chance to finally meet the real Chris Sievey, through never-before-seen archive and the memories of his family, colleagues and close friends.

hey want to know more? i am the secret link, this really is a fantastic link... you know it is

frank sidebottom statue campaign update

as you know we have been trying to fund raise to get a statue of the fantastic frank sidebottom in Timperley.
but as time has been passing getting enough funds for our original target is going to take a very long time, so we have come up with a solution.

martin sievey , chris sievey (frank sidebottom) brother has come forward who will now create a new model and do the casting for the frank Sidebottom bronze statue, we plan to do the actual casting at “castle fine arts” foundry.

by bringing in house this project a significant saving will be made, and with a final push we are going to be able to commission work on this almost straight away.

we have some sites for the statue in timperley in mind, and this is going to be subject to approval from the local authority, once we have a thumbs up we will be submitting a planning application.

we are grateful for all of the support we have had  and a “frank Sidebottom” < thank you> to everyone that has purchased merchandise, given a donation, put on or attended a fund raiser.

some more merchandise will soon be back on sale, and we are currently looking for some volunteers that can help us with the admin/packing/shipping of merchandise.

also a number of items from the frankophillia exhibition will be up for auction. plus a number of frank sidebottoms very own personal personal  items will also be up for auction.

a film/documentary is currently being commissioned by a guy called steve Sullivan and filming and production will take place over the next year, this is being done via the film board of wale's. This is going to be about the life of chris sievey and also frank sidebottom

we kindly ask that that any fundraiser / merchandise ideas are discussed and approved before going ahead

all official news regarding the frank Sidebottom statue will be published here on this web site
