Concert Broadcast: Romantic Hero – Manchester Collective

Creative Tourist

4 April 2020 Entrance is free

Manchester Collective have been doing an amazing job of keeping us all entertained during the current situation with you-know-what. We’re delighted that they’ve been showing the same innovation online as they do all year long with their superb programming.

Their gig broadcast series continues this weekend with Romantic Hero. This show was recorded in Hull and features the incredible concert pianist Jayson Gillham, plus an opening set from ‘East Coast beachcomber’ Tom Skelly.

The romantic hero is bold and uncompromising. Emotionally extreme, but also sensitive. Above all, the romantic hero is exceptional…
