Take In The Sounds Of Jazz Icons By Candlelight At One Of Manchester’s Most Loved Open-Air Venues

By Laura Rogan

Immerse yourself in the sounds of legends.

Kicking off the summer in style, Fever’s bestselling Candlelight Jazz event is back with a twist, this time, bringing the sounds of musical legends to one of Manchester’s most loved open-air venues – Hatch. And when we say legends, we mean it – with music by the likes of Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, and the Queen herself, Aretha Franklin, taking centre stage during the events.

Lit up by the long-running event’s signature candlelit decor which surrounds the talented performers and guests as the music plays, the upcoming shows are the perfect way to re-start life post-lockdown – combining music, the summer air, drinks and socialising in a unique manner. The flicker of hundreds of candles will only add to Hatch’s existing ambience, too, taking full advantage of the sociable and warming space and transforming the venue into a charming jazz club.

Guests can expect classic hits performed by some of the UK’s top musicians, with 90 minutes of soulful music originally performed by the names who are still known to this day for pioneering soul and jazz back in the 50s and 60s. Tickets for the Marvin Gaye and Ray Charles event are on sale here, and you can snap up tickets for the Aretha Franklin and Frank Sinatra show here.

Hatch’s fantastic food traders will be on hand during the events, too, a roster of which currently includes the Portuguese-inspired KBOM, Grandad’s Sausages and Vietnamese street food heroes Hanoi 75 – as well as drinks specialists vin-yard and Electrik Box.*

Candlelight Jazz has been wildly popular since it launched back in 2020, and tickets for the new open-air shows are on sale now. Pick up tickets to the Marvin Gaye and Ray Charles event here, or the Aretha Franklin and Frank Sinatra show here (or just book on for both, because, you know, it’s been a long, boring winter).

*Please note traders for the event are currently unconfirmed.
