The Last Night of the Proms from around the UK

The traditional Last Night Proms in the Park celebrations from around the UK. YolanDa Brown and Josie d’Arby present a thrilling mix of classical and contemporary performances.

YolanDa Brown and Josie d’Arby take us on a whistle stop tour around the UK as the nations join in the Last Night of the Proms celebrations. A star-studded line-up is joined by some of the country’s most exciting emerging talent as each location presents a mix of timeless classics and contemporary hits.

Josie D’Arby is at Swansea’s Singleton Park with 80s pop sensations ABC, West End star Sophie Evans, Andrei Kymach, who was crowned BBC Cardiff Singer of the World 2019 in June, and BBC Young Jazz Musician 2018 winner, saxophonist Xhosa Cole.

At Glasgow Green, one of Scotland’s best-selling and much-loved female singers, Barbara Dickson, entertains the crowds alongside Scottish soprano Eleanor Dennis and violinist Stephanie Childress, who is already making her name as one of the most exciting musicians of her generation.

Susan Boyle headlines at Titanic Slipways, Belfast, as she celebrates ten years in the industry. Alongside her on the line-up, Australian tenor Mark Vincent and award-winning violinist Ziyu He.

And at London’s Hyde Park, YolanDa Brown is on hand to capture the very best performances from a line-up that includes American singer-songwriter and founding member of the Pretenders Chrissie Hynde, English-Italian singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti, and, headlining the show, the legendary Barry Manilow.

It’s a party like no other, with the nations joining in the traditional celebrations as the world’s greatest musical festival draws to a close.
