Alfie Boe is to headline a special Last Night of The Proms concert in Lytham.
Taking place in the grounds of historic Lytham Hall on Sunday August 28, the picnic proms-style event will see Alfie perform alongside a full orchestra.
Fellow Broadway and West End star John Owen-Jones will be a special guest for the show, opening the concert.
Last Night of The Proms is presented by Lytham Festival directors Cuffe & Taylor and follows the success of their WonderHall festival last summer which saw £153,000 donated to the continued restoration of Lytham Hall from the Russell Watson Proms concert. All money raised from Alfie’s spectacular will also be gifted to the Grade 1 listed venue for further restoration and projects.
Tickets go on sale at 9AM on Friday, 6 May from www.lythamfestival.com
Speaking about his return, Alfie said: “I cannot wait to get back to perform on homeground. As a proud Lancastrian it will be very special for me and to stand in front of an audience which I am sure will have many familiar faces is just the icing on the cake.
“This will be a brilliant night in a magical setting and I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
Peter Taylor added: “We have had the pleasure of working with Alfie on numerous concerts and tours over the years so we are delighted to have secured him for our 2022 Last Night of the Proms at Lytham Hall.
“He is beloved globally but the people of Lancashire and particularly our coastal towns feel a natural closeness to their locally born star.
“It is also exciting to have John Owen-Jones on the bill too. John is a wonderful talent and to have both Alfie and John performing on the same stage on the same evening will make this special for everyone.
