The Haçienda to celebrate 40 years with rave on car park where former club once stood

To celebrate 40 years of Haçienda, a rave is to be held in the car park where the club used to stand.

The renowned Manchester venue will host its anniversary at the car park of the Hacienda apartments on Whitworth Street West on May 21.

In 2012, for their 30th anniversary, a rave at the same location was held which saw the club's original co-owner, Peter Hook at the event as well as many other people connected with the Haçienda.

People that joined the 30th anniversary festivities included Manchester legends such as Bez, Mark E Smith and original Hacienda DJs like Graeme Park, Dave Haslam, Jon DaSilva and Hewan Clarke.

According to The Manchester Evening News, a letter has been sent to residents by the Hacienda event organisers - Peter Hook, Paul Fletcher, James Masters and Aaron Mellor.

It reads: "The Hacienda is revered as part of both Manchester's and the UK's musical history, returning to the original site of the club for the 40th anniversary will be very special for everyone, undoubtedly enhancing the reputation of the building".

It adds: "As you might be aware, FAC51 The Hacienda celebrates its 40th anniversary in May 2022, having opened its doors in May 1982 to create the legacy which has given the apartments their unique heritage and history.

"Some might remember or may even have attended the event which we did for the 30th anniversary in 2012 which was much praised and this event will be generally similar to our previous event in the car park. All proceeds from the event are to be donated directly to charities."
