A permanent memorial for former Living Ventures boss Tim Bacon – who lost his fight against cancer last month at the age of 52 – is being planned for Manchester city centre.
Living Ventures and Allied London, which owns Spinningfields, are planning ‘something special’., according to the Manchester Evening News.
In a joint statement, Michael Ingall, chief executive of Allied London, and Jeremy Roberts, chief executive of Living Ventures said; “The Oast House and the Courtyard were the subject of a particular conversation very shortly before Tim’s untimely death so we want to find a way to commemorate Tim’s passionate contribution to Manchester and think he would appreciate something dedicated to his memory there in Spinningfields.”
“Spinningfields is the home of several new ventures created by Tim and the Living Ventures team and was a source of inspiration and passion to him. One possibility is to look at incorporating something special into the urban landscape in and around the Oast House Courtyard. We are working on a design brief which will seek innovative and appropriate ways to achieve this aim, which will be presented to Tim’s family in due course.”
