Manchester's great and the good were out in force last night at Urbis in Manchester to take a further step on the road to deciding what the city should do in tribute to Tony Wilson, reports the Manchester Evening News.

The main proposal was for a cultural summer school for young people in Manchester to be created in Wilson's honour. Steve Coogan, who played AHW in 24 Hour Party People, said "What we can't do is institutionalise this project, because if anything Tony was anti-institutional."

Peter Hook said "There was a fantastic array of people there. It was a great compliment to Tony to get so many influential people together. Things are still in the planning stage but I think we all agree we've got to do something."

Others in attendance in Happy Mondays' manager Elliot Rashman, Paul Morley and Peter Saville.
