This year's Leeds Castle Classical Concert will pay tribute to the Second World War.
The popular event, which attracts thousands every summer, will be held at the castle on Saturday, July 8.
The event, which has been held since 1978, will acknowledge events that took place during the early part of the war, with songs featuring including The White Cliffs of Dover, Pack Up Your Troubles, Tipperary and We’ll Meet Again.
The theme coincides with a new attraction at the castle, the Battle for the Skies, where visitors step back in time with an audio visual experience telling the story of the Battle of Britain in the skies over Kent, and learn about the castle's role in looking after servicemen.
Aled Jones returns to host with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by John Rigby.
John said: "The castle is an art form in itself and combined with the musicians, singers, pilots, the artillery and the Spitfire, it's a very special day for us."
The line-up includes the Central Band of the Royal Air Force and the Patriot Girls.
There will also be a flypast from a 1940s Spitfire and on the ground, field guns, plus a fireworks finale accompanied by rousing music.
