The Enid return to duty with a one-off live show at The Met in Bury, Greater Manchester on October 25. It heralds the start of fresh activity from the band in the wake of leader Robert John Godfrey's misdiagnosis with Alzheimer's in 2016.

A new tour in also expected to be announced at the same time.

The current line-up of the band features Godfrey, guitarist Jason Ducker and keyboard player Tristan Mitchard. They will be joined for the Bury show by guests Dave Storey (drums) and percussionist and bassist Nic Willes.
