Legendary saxophonist and Sun-Ra Arkestra bandleader Marshall Allen joins forces with acclaimed film-maker James Harrar for this incredible collaboration featuring rare 1960s and 1970s Arkestra film footage reassembled by Harrar and sliced through live on stage with Allen’s extraordinary music.

Support comes from sax man Nat Birchall’s quartet whose cult hit and now highly sought after soulful slice of spiritual jazz Akhenaten (released on trumpeter Matthew Halsall’s label, Gondwana Records, in 2009) confirmed the spirit of Coltrane was alive and well in Northern England.

This seated concert will begin at 8.30pm
