Let's take it intergalactic🚀🚀

We are mega excited to be back at Escape to Freight Island following on from our sell out show with Dub Smuggler & MC Kwasi. Playhouse's favourite line up Veba & Lil'Fee returns for a b2b set expect Electronica & Disco for your dancefloor stomp.

VEBA (Rae & Christian, Fat City, Groove Armada, HOMOBLOC & La Discotheque) Manchester music scene queen and one of Manchester's greatest soul singers & DJs.
Lil’ Fee (The Whip, Flex) has enjoyed an international music career as the drummer in slick, dance-rock outfit, The Whip.

ELECTRON - A walkabout unlike any other with multiple lights, strobes and inbuilt lasers on his suit. Playhouse's ROBOT is lost on an unfamiliar planet searching for a new source of energy until he discovered something extraordinary - that we call, music...!

Square Pegs - Blast off from Escape to Freight Island and let your imagination soar high with Square Pegs. They’ll encourage you to get creative and make your very own jet pack out of recycled mixed media.

The Conker Crew - Nature and Science collide as our imaginations run wild with some martian mini-beast making, the creation of your very own solar system and even the weaving of your own star to guide you on our Scavenger Space Quest. And if the cosmos is just too chaotic, you can always seek solace at the Conker Crew Creative Station where sensory-fuelled free play meets exploratory experimentation.
