The Untold Orchestra is bringing a string of summer shows to Escape To Freight Island across August and September, offering orchestral renditions of Radiohead, Paul Simon and Aretha Franklin songs – alongside nights celebrating a range of other well-known artists.

For just £8 per ticket and with two performances available per show (one at 5pm and another at 8.30pm), this Manchester-based modern-day orchestra will be treating post-lockdown crowds to hits from other artists like Prince (18 August), David Bowie (1 September), Elton John (8 September) and Amy Winehouse (15 September), each Wednesday throughout the next two months.

Giving modern hits a classical twist, this home-grown collective consisting of local freelance creatives and performers have worked alongside an array of Manchester communities over the years with the aim of redefining the orchestral sound for 21st century audiences. They’ve collaborated with the Grammy-Award winning artist and composer Bill Laurence of Snarky Puppy and Manchester musicians Skittles and The Lottery Winners alongside working with various community project groups in Hulme, Moss Side and Cheetham Hill.

This opportunity to see them take over one of the city’s newest and most popular party venues for a summer residency with a difference is sure to be the perfect antidote to a year spent indoors.

Tickets for the Untold Orchestra’s Aretha Franklin (11 August), Radiohead (22 September) and Paul Simon (29 September) shows are all available to book now – alongside their remaining dates celebrating the works of pop-culture’s most celebrated and revered artists.
