Factory, mine and mill. Industry, toil and grime. Its manufacturing roots mean we still see the North of England as a hardworking place. But, more than possibly anywhere else, the North has always known how to get dressed up, take itself out on the town and have a good time. After all, working and playing hard is its specialty, and Stuart Maconie is in search of what, exactly, this entails what it tells us about the North today. Following tip offs and rumour, Stuart takes trip to forgotten corners and localsa€™ haunts. From the tapas bars of Halifax to the caravan parks of Berwick Upon Tweed, from a Westhoughton bowling green to Manchestera€™s curry mile, via dog tracks and art galleries, dance floors and high fells, Stuart compares the new and old North, with some surprising results. The Pie at Night could be seen as a companion to the bestselling Pies and Prejudice, but it is not a sequel. After all, this is a new decade and the North is changing faster than ever. This is a revealing and digressive journey and a State of the North address, delivered from barstool, terrace, dress circle and hillside.I dona#39;t want this to happen to me, because I have my eye on the iPad mini top prize at said hookaduck stall, where ... They ask us if we want a go in their armoured car, which strikes me as a brilliant way of getting you to join up. ... The guy from the Yeomanry, a chubby little fellow with glasses and a cap with a feather on, says that they cana#39;t use the actual rear mounted machine gun a#39;for reasons of spacea#39;.
