Eric Cantona UK Tour 2017 – A1 Sporting Speakers & Matt Hardy Photography

Last week the Manchester United legend visited the United Kingdom,

Partnered with A1 Sporting Speakers they hosted a variety of shows up and down the country. I was booked to attend the shows and also photograph behind the scenes of the event.

I have photographed Eric before in Portugal alongside and it was great to see him again. We started the week in Bournemouth before heading to London and finally Manchester. It was such an incredible a surreal experience photographing him on and off stage and also having many evening dinners with him and drinks after the shows. From the moment he showed his face in the morning till the time we left the restaurant he was non stop signing autographs and posing for photos. Eric is adored by hundreds of thousands of fans all over the world, however in Manchester he is classed as a god. The crowds chanted his name and sang his songs whilst he was on stage and as he finished each show he was given a standing ovation. 

Below are small selection from the tour and my time with the King.

What a week!

Saturday 17th os September was WWIM14 (World Wide Instameet #14) Set by Instagram and it was a food theme for this meet. I was invited along with 50 other foodie instagrammers to experience some of Londons best places to eat and also celebrate the wonderful diversity of London’s food.

Starting at the Mondorian hotel for breakfast, where we were given £10 and a bag which we had to fill with fresh produce from th incredible Borough Marketas part of #MarketToMichelin. This would then be given to the team at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen

It was then over the to stunning Fortnum & Mason for champagne afternoon tea. who kindly donated £10 vouchers to all everyone. We used the money to buy gifts for the volunteers of @ShelterCharity .

After stuffing our faces in their amazing cakes we ventured to Camden Market for @KerbFood in Camden for #MarketToMichelin! I was in heaven street food is my thing and camden lock is just Incredible.

From Camden it was over to Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, Here we got everyone back together and gave all the produce purchased to the chefs. We have donated all of this to @CentralStreetCookerySchool who do incredible work teaching vulnerable people how to cook.
