BBC Proms In The Park At The Titanic Slipways
BBC Proms in the Park in Northern Ireland is in its 13th year and all tickets for the free event at the Titanic Slipways have been allocated.
Saturday night’s event is set to be the biggest ever with an audience of 11,000 people.
Tenor Alfie Boe will take centre stage and joins a star-studded line-up of international and home-grown talent, who will perform alongside the Ulster Orchestra under the baton of David Brophy.
Also on stage will be ‘Strictly’ couple Anton du Beke and Erin Boag, Grammy-nominated saxophonist Amy Dickson, virtuoso violinist Kirill Troussov and BBC Young Musician 2014 winner Martin James Bartlett.
Jazz singer Dana Masters will be accompanied on stage by some of Northern Ireland’s finest jazz musicians. The event is part of the BBC's Last Night of the Proms celebrations as once again Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England host live events to mark the end of the world's largest classical music festival.
BBC Proms in the Park from the Titanic Slipways, Belfast, is hosted by BBC Northern Ireland’s Noel Thompson and Claire McCollum and is supported by Belfast City Council.
