STARS of the X Factor will appear at this year’s Castle Howard Proms, organisers have confirmed.
Alexandra Burke and Olly Murs will be the stars of this year’s show, which will be held at the stately home on Sunday August 14. Burke, who came in first place on the sixth series of X-Factor, will perform a selection of her hits, including her cover of Hallelujah and Bad Boys.
Also performing at the show will be 2009 runner-up Olly Murs, who will perform tracks from his self-titled debut album.
Olly’s performance will take place before he flies to northern Kenya to take part in the Comic Relief 100km trek across the Kaisut desert.
Rob McIntosh, producer of the event, said it would be one of the biggest events ever staged at Castle Howard.
