Some of the biggest names in British classical music will perform a special tribute to the UK’s Armed Forces at the Scarborough Open Air Theatre next summer.

On Saturday, June 28 Welsh singer and television and radio broadcaster Aled Jones will host and perform in a Last Night of the Proms-style concert, featuring the Military Wives Choirs York, Britain’s most exciting young mezzo soprano Laura Wright and Welsh male choral group Only Men Aloud.

Musical accompaniment will be provided by the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) and the concert will finish with a grand firework finale.

The date has been specifically chosen to coincide with national Armed Forces Day and the council has arranged for everyone buying a ticket for the concert to be able to make a voluntary donation to the national Armed Forces charity SSAFA.
