Following the sold-out debut event earlier this year, the orchestral Northern Soul and Motown music event is back and is stomping its way to theatres later this year. The innovative Manchester Camerata and renowned composer Joe Duddell will perform the very best of Northern Soul and Motown at Blackpool Opera House on 25 August, Bridgewater Hall in Manchester on 2 November, and London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on 3 November.

Out on the Floor features the big beat ballad and legendary all-nighter finisher, Long After Tonight is Over by Jimmy Radcliffe;  Do I Love You by Frank Wilson, which originally pressed in 1965 and Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell,  one of the most important records ever released by Motown.

Glastonbury openers, UK Ensemble of the Year (RPS Music Awards 2017) and ‘Probably Britain’s most adventurous orchestra’ (The Times) – Manchester Camerata redefine what an orchestra can do. Famous for innovation, the orchestra pops up in all sorts of places, from concert halls to care homes, and collaborates with a spectrum of artists, from classical superstar Martha Argerich to iconic band, New Order and now stepping into the world of the much beloved Motown and Northern Soul.

Once again, original Northern Soul DJ’s Richard Searling and Colin Curtis from The Wigan Casino and Manchester’s Twisted Wheel will DJ in the reception before the show and in the interval at The Bridgewater Hall. Richard Searling will also be DJ’ing at London O2 Shepherds Bush Empire which will have both seated and standing areas encouraging audiences to dance and share in the joy of this legendary musical experience.
