The Hallé Fireworks and Light Spectacular is set to be an unforgettable evening on Saturday 30 July. Returning to the stunning lakeside setting for their 20th year, the world-class Halle Orchestra, conducted by Philip Ellis on the night, will play a melody of opera’s most dramatic master-pieces, joined by Britain’s most popular Soprano, Lesley Garrett. With eleven solo CDs to her credit, a plethora of awards and a CBE for her Services to Music, Lesley Garrett has won both critical acclaim and the affection of fans and music lovers nationally and abroad.

This is one incredible summer experience not to be missed.

Treating guests to his greatest hits and undeniable charisma, Tom will showcase the distinctive talent that has seen him sell over 100 million records worldwide. This outstanding evening is in association with Francis House Children’s Hospice, with a portion of proceeds raised on the night going towards care for children and young adults with life threatening conditions from all over the North West.
