Classical four-some Amore will be joining Katherine Jenkins and the National Symphony Orchestra on Sunday 21 July.
Electronic pop legend Howard Jones is one of the defining artists of the 80s. Since his debut album Human’s Lib reached no.1 in the UK album charts in 1984 he has had numerous hits including ‘New Song’, ‘What is Love?’ and ‘Things Can Only Get Better’. Joining as support on Saturday 20 July will be the uniquely gifted performer Toyah Willcox. With a career spanning over 30 years Toyah’s biggest hits include ‘It’s a Mystery’, ‘I Want to be Free’ and ‘Thunder in the Mountains’. The night will be held in association with Francis House Children’s Hospice, with fundraising on the night going towards care for children and young adults with life-threatening conditions from all over the North West.
Joining one of Britain’s most favorite singers, Katherine Jenkins, on Sunday 21 July will be the pop-opera four piece Amore. Delighting audiences with their renditions of operatic classics, band members David Webb, Victoria Gray, Monica McGhee and Peter Brathwaite have already performed at a number of high profile events including the Classic BRIT Awards with Russell Watson in 2012 and The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The night will culminate in a stunning firework display across the backdrop of Tatton Park.
Tatton Park Picnic Concerts stands out in a busy UK summer music programme due to its perfect marriage of the magical outdoor setting and world-class music performances, together with the celebration of one of Britain’s favourite pastimes. Guests can choose to bring their own picnics or enjoy the delicious pre-prepared picnic hampers provided by Carluccio’s. With the estate’s interesting history of music – the mansion boasts a dedicated music room with a 1789 harpsichord – Tatton Park is the perfect destination for an incredible night of entertainment.
