Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is coming back to The Lowry, Salford in April for a special event.
The Lowry, Salford is set to host An Evening With Ryan Giggs on 15th April which will see him do a live on-stage interview with Pete Graves
Fans will also get the opportunity to meet him in person before the event
Promoters said: "As far as Manchester United legends go, Ryan Giggs is by far the most decorated footballer in their history having won over 30 trophies including a record 13 premier League Titles and two European Cups as well as having countless individual accolades and records to his name.
"Ryan Giggs was and still remains a fans favourite of the modern era and they still sing his name near on every game. For Manchester United fans the sheer thought of him running past defenders and scoring incredible solo goals still puts the hairs up on the back of their necks as they remember Giggs was one of the most exciting players of his generation and a rare talent for which they may never see the likes of again.
"Who knows what to expect when the Welsh-wizard Ryan Giggs takes to the stage for an extremely rare public appearance and interview about his illustrious career.

Mariposa: a Transgender Tragedy Inspired by Puccini’s Madame Butterfly
Under the flickering neon lights of a distant Caribbean port, a local rent boy and a foreign sailor fall ominously in love in choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra’s inventive reimagining of Puccini’s seminal opera. DeNada Dance Theatre’s Madame Butterfly is immersed in a mist of Havana smoke, within which a young man is asked to sacrifice his gender in exchange of love and a better life.
Mariposa is an operatic dance drama that transports Puccini’s Orientalist libretto to post-revolution Cuba, to a dockland world of faded showgirls, hopeful rent boys, troubled sailors and santeria spirits. Engulfed in a tropical storm of repressed desires, this brand new production is a passionate and deeply moving exploration of what we are ready to sacrifice in order to be loved and accepted.
Set to an original score by Spanish composer Luis Miguel Cobo, which takes its inspiration from Caribbean sounds as well as Puccini, with libretto by French-Indian writer Karthika Nair and designs by Ryan Laight, Mariposa is performed by the diverse international cast of DeNada Dance Theatre, a UK Critic’s Circle National Dance Awards nominee in the category of Best Independent Company.
Running time: Approx. 1 hour 30 mins (including interval)
Age guidance: 12+ due to scenes and content of a sexual nature
Mariposa has been commissioned by Birmingham Dance Hub and Spin Arts, with further support from DanceXchange and the British Council. The creation and tour of Mariposa is also funded by Arts Council England.
