Noel Gallagher and New Order's Peter Hook are among the musicians giving their support to a new hall of fame-style venue celebrating Manchester's musical history.

The hall is being set up by London-based firm 3DTwin. It will feature memorabilia from Manchester's music scene and will honour the city's most famous artists, reports the Manchester Evening News.

The Smiths, The Bee Gees, Oasis, New Order, Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses and Take That are all expected to feature.

Speaking in support of it, Gallagher said: "Manchester has always punched above its weight musically and it's high time this was celebrated in a way that will act as an inspiration to the next generation of artists."

3DTwin founder Richard Abbot added that the building, which he hopes will be around the size of a football pitch, will include a live venue, restaurant, screenings room and mega-store. The company is currently vetting suitable venues in the city.
