Live music is set to make a grand return.

It feels like a lifetime since our ears were graced with the sound of live music, but at long last the luxury of live entertainment is set to return, and Escape to Freight Island have already planned an impressive roster for us to enjoy.

Kicking off their summer season with a fantastic string of shows paying homage to musical legends, Escape to Freight Island has teamed up with the Untold Orchestra – who’ll be taking to the stage this June, July and August.

The orchestra, which comprises some of the UK’s finest classical, pop and jazz musicians, has made quite the reputation for itself in just four years, performing in a number of sell-out shows here in Manchester, including ‘Nina: An Orchestral Rendition’ and ’50 Years of Abbey Road: An Orchestral Rendition’. Now, the orchestra will return to the city to bring us the music of more icons, including Stevie Wonder, Bowie and The Beatles.

See the full schedule below:

Disney: 6th June, 4th July, 1st August
Stevie Wonder: 2nd June
Bowie: 9th June
The Beatles: 16th June
Britpop: 23rd June
Motown: 30th June


The special shows will be accompanied by Escape to Freight Island’s fantastic food and drink vendors, with pizza, burgers, beers and more up for grabs.

Tickets for the shows are on sale now, and you can find out more here.
