Peter Hook Launches University Course Based On The Haçienda

Talk about love breaking your heart. In a move that would make Factory Records impresario Tony Wilson proud, former Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook is teaming up with the University of Central Lancashire to launch a university master's course inspired by the infamous Manchester club The Haçienda.

Keeping with the Factory spirit, Hook announced Factory251, the music venue inside the former label office, will help launch a master's degree in Music Industry Management and Promotion.

Naturally, he’ll be helping students as a guest mentor, offering advice based on his experiences of co-running the club, which was a money pit for both New Order and the label. Speaking of his involvement, he said to The Guardian, "I am excited to be involved in a project that's going to offer genuine opportunities to help support the future of the British music industry."
