It’s been a long wait - but we’ll meet again this weekend for a night of flag-waving, festival atmosphere and fireworks.
The Leeds Castle Concert is back after a year’s postponement for a sensational open air night on Saturday, September 4.
One of the county’s biggest nights of music will feature the world-class Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by John Rigby, and Down for the Count swing orchestra; field guns and a Spitfire flypast.
Five sensational soloists will also star: tenor Alexander James Edward, who has performed at the concert twice before; Tim Howar, whose versatile voice has earned him the nickname Tim “the power” Howar; West End Wicked star Louise Dearman, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang star Emma Williams and baritone Felix Kemp making their debuts.
Emma said: “I’m so excited to be re-visiting Leeds Castle - one of my favourite places - but this time as a performer instead of in the audience.”
Felix added: “After the long and difficult year behind us, this will be a very special day for us all to enjoy together, with a smile and a glass of Champagne and the hope for better times ahead.”
There are still some tickets available at £53 each. To book visit leedscastleconcert.co.uk
