Unless it's a 'Juliette Balcony'. They grind my gears. Now, I've read Shakespeare, that is not the balcony that good old William describes. Unless she was a blacksmith.

Edit: I'm presuming that's how they get the name.

In a huge coincidence, I just happened to flick onto an episode of Two and a Half Men and noticed a British character (I don't watch this often).

This British woman looked very much like the Secret Escapes girl (Arfwedson), so I looked up the episode on IMDB. It turns out the girl is actually the same girl who played Big Suze, so this reinforces your point even more, they look almost identical.

Castlefield? Salford Quays? or Hulme?

I've lived in all three but none of them currently, The first two are rife with ridiculously small balconies. Hulme is more of a Juliette Balcony type place.

Might pitch this Alan Partridge style to a BBC exec for a new show 'Balconies of Britain with Chris Eubank'

Juggalos and the whole gathering thing grinds my gears. Gathering of losers that think they are 'individuals'. Suppose they've got to feel part of a collective at some point, it obviously isn't working for them in their real life. I wouldn't criticise being unique, but these think they are when they aren't.

I had to Google the definition of a Juggalo. That grinds my gears, I am old.
