** The "Live At Heaton Park 4.8.91" promo video for FACT 335 contains the full set.

Music festival held at Heaton Park, Manchester, August 4, 1991. Factory intended to release 'Cities In The Park' as an LP in early 1992, which was then given up in favour of a video, which was then given up as well. The video was then released in 1992 by Palace Video.

The event was subtitled: "In Memoriam Martin Hannett". (A week later, Factory released FACT 325 'Martin, The Work of Martin Hannett'.) Posters and t-shirts were made for this event.
