Thursday August 3 sees the increasing popular FAC51 The Haçienda and Manchester Camerata experimental orchestra perform Haçienda Classical.

The Traditional Last Night of the Proms night on Sunday August 6 will see the week-long festival close with West End Proms as a string of West End and Broadway stars all take to the stage. Miss Saigon star Lea Salonga, star of Les Miserable and Phantom of the Opera Ramin Karimloo, musical theatre group Collabro, Olivier Award winner Ruthie Henshall, Chicago star Claire Sweeney, 90s pop sensation turned musical theatre star Jon Lee, Blackpool musical theatre star Jodie Prenger, Lytham-born rising West End star Lucie Mae Sumner and English National Opera soprano Jo Appleby will all come together to create West End Proms.
