In November 2000, many of the key elements from the iconic venue the Hacienda ended up as 69 lots at a charity auction before it was demolished to make way for a block of apartments.
It resulted in parts of the nightclub – the epicenter of Manchester’s rave culture in the 1980s and 1990s – being scattered across the world.
This documentary film tracks down what happened to the parts of the club itself, whose famous industrial design by interiors guru Ben Kelly included motorway cat’s eyes, traffic bollards and hazard signs.
The documentary isn’t just about the Haçienda. It’s also about the people so affected by their times there, that they had to come to Manchester to bid for bricks, toilets, exit signs and even pieces of the hallowed dance floor –and also about where those mementos are now.
