North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Thousands expected to head north for Hacienda Classical

On Friday (19 August), Sunderland’s Herrington Country Park will play host to Haçienda Classical – a one night only tribute to dance music classics from the heyday of Manchester’s legendary Haçienda nightclub.

And gig-goers are coming from as far away as Brighton, Glasgow, Canterbury and Bristol for the show, whichpromises acid house hits, played by a full orchestra – with a DJ mix thrown in.

The tracks, by bands such as New Order, Black Box and Marshall Jefferson, have been reinterpreted by the club’s original DJs, Mike Pickering and Graeme Park and will be played alongside the Manchester Camerata Orchestra with performances from the AMC Choir, New Order’s Peter Hook and Happy Mondays’ Rowetta.

“People really are coming from far and wide for this concert – the response has been absolutely incredible,” said Karen Makepeace, in-house promoter for Northern Sessions, which has organised the event.

“And not only will the show be unlike anything we’ve ever staged before but there will be a real festival feel to the evening – it’s going to be a brilliant night.”

Last minute tickets are still available with two ticket packages, each including hospitality, with catering provided by Ramside Event Catering, a division of Ramside Hall Hotel, Co Durham.

General admission tickets include access to a Gin Palace, Prosecco bar, Mojito Tent and traditional bar, a coffee bar and food stations serving hog roast, noodles, crispy chicken and duck wraps and gourmet burgers.

VIP guests will be able to relax in the hospitality marquee with secure enclosure and a dedicated food and bar service.

Tickets cost £35 for general admission and £100 for VIP and are available from http://www.ticketline.co.uk/hacienda-classical-northern-sessions#bio  or through 0844 8889991.
