The people behind the A Wing events at Lancaster Castle are bringing the sounds of the Hacienda nightclub to Williamson Park.

With the Ashton Memorial as a backdrop, FAC51 Hacienda and Manchester Camerata Orchestra, curated by Graeme Park and Mike Pickering, will be appearing for the special project on May 8 2016.

The legendary DJs will select and perform a continuous set of signature Haçienda tracks alongside the orchestra in this innovative live fusion event.

A spokesman for organisers Skiddle said: “A Wing has decided to go ahead with this new project after the response we’ve had from our events at the Castle which have been very positive.

“Working closely with the Duchy of Lancaster has also been a great success so we felt it was the right time to take on a new project.

“After visiting the site for the first time 18 months ago and falling in love with it, we have been working closely with local authorities to make this now finally happen.

“We will be using the incredible Ashton Memorial as a back drop to house this spectacular show.”

Tickets can be pre-registered from www.skiddle.com, with full tickets on sale soon.
