Party the night away as the Platinum Jubilee Prom comes to Quex Park over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend.
The Birchington venue will host two consecutive outdoor events this June to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
On the first day, the renowned National Symphony Orchestra will be performing a variety of classical numbers from their extensive repertoire.
The National Symphony Orchestra has recorded more than 40 complete major classic musicals since the 1940s, making it one of the longest-established professional freelance orchestras in the UK. Fans might be familiar with some of the orchestra’s most prestigious performances at venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, Barbican and the Royal Albert Hall.
There will also be a chance to sing along as the live musicians will lead the National Anthem, Rule Britannia and Jerusalem.
The orchestra will be joined by West End stars from the Simon and Garfunkel Story, charity choir the Manwood Singers, from Sandwich, soprano singer Annette Wardell and Neil Duncan performing as Dean Martin.
This jam-packed evening of live entertainment will be rounded off by a spectacular firework finale.
The Sunday will then see the venue host a tribute concert, with a number of artists performing as some of rock and pop’s most well-known stars.
The line-up includes Bon Giovi, Niqi Brown as Tina Turner, Queen tribute band Majesty and George Michael tribute band Beyond Faith.
Both dates are set to mimic a street party atmosphere, with a variety of food and drink outlets available, including a licensed bar. However, guests are also welcome to bring their own refreshments for a picnic in the park if they wish.
The Platinum Jubilee Prom takes place on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5. Book online here.
Tickets are also available from Quex Barn at Quex Park Birchington and the School Shop on Addington Street in Margate.
