Park Concert for Eighties Fans

Eighties pop stars Tony Hadley and Rick Astley are performing at an open air concert in Cheshire that is benefitting Francis House Children’s Hospice

The singers will be playing at the Tatton Park Picnic Concerts for the children’s hospice based in Didsbury.

The two night event will take place in July and hopes to raise money to support respite care for ill children and their families that the hospice provides for people throughout the North West.

On the first night on the 28th July the Halle symphony orchestra and their 100-strong choir will be performing conducted by Stephen Bell.

They will be performing Handel’s Zadok the Priest, the Anvil Chorus from Verdi’s Il trovatore and Orf’s O Fortuna from Carmina Burana followed by a fireworks display.

On 29th July music fans are in for a real treat as they are taken Back To The Eighties with Tony Hadley, Rick Astley, Heaven 17, Roland Gift, from Fine Young Cannibals, and Altered Images.

Last year’s event raised £32,721 for Francis House through corporate hospitality.
