Huddersfield beatboxer Ball-Zee and classical group Stems will take part in multi-sensory music event tonight.

An Evening of Enlightenment will fuse sound, light and fire in the magical surroundings of Wakefield’s listed Orangery premises.

The ‘new music’ event, headlined by Leeds’ rockers Middleman, has been curated by Noah Burton, founder member of Huddersfield group Extra Curricular.

The up and coming artists will perform live against an ambient backdrop of sound, outdoor performance, shadow puppetry and other visual delights, all among a unique and wondrous environment scattered with fire sculptures.

The event is a product of a collaboration between Noah, Wakefield-based creative company Beam, and the Grade II listed Orangery where Beam is based.

It is funded through a nationwide programme called New Music Plus (NMP) that places music producers with non-music organisations.

Noah said: “It’s so great to be part of the NMP scheme.

“It has enabled me to work with a non-music organisation to develop a project that I am really excited about delivering.

“It is on a scale of which I personally never undertaken before and I think An Evening Of Enlightenment will be a fantastic event that will showcase some amazing artists and the Orangery as a truly special venue.

“This could potentially be the first of a regular light and music event for Wakefield.”

Tonight’s event is at The Orangery, Wakefield Doors, 7pm.
