West End and Broadway stars will return to Lytham Festival’s spectacular Last Night of the Proms for 2017.
The week-long festival in August 2017 will see in excess of 70 thousand people visit the town on the North West’s Fylde Coast.
And for the final act of the festival on Sunday August 6 the show “West End Proms”, produced exclusively for Lytham, will see a string of stars including Miss Saigon’ 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 all take to the stage.
Tickets are on sale now from www.lythamfestival.com
The stars of both stage and screen will perform an array of hits with a full 60-piece orchestra. The evening will end with a traditional Last Night of the Proms finale – an event when families and live music lovers are encouraged to pack up their candelabras and picnic hampers for an evening of musical celebration.
A sell-out West End Proms was scheduled for Lytham Festival 2016 but high winds resulted in the concert being cancelled and following demands from the public, festival organisers have decided the show must return – with the same dazzling line-up.
Lytham Festival director Peter Taylor said he is delighted to be bringing West End Proms back.
Peter said: “This was a sensational line up last year and it’s a sensational line up for 2017. We were devastated when the weather caused us to cancel West End Proms for 2016 and we were inundated with people who had attended asking us to reschedule for 2017, so that is exactly what we have done.
“Once again, I can promise this really is going to be a spectacular show and I personally cannot wait to see all these stars back in Lytham again.
“It is also testament to the success of Lytham Festival that everyone involved in 2016’s West End Proms wants to return for 2017. Everyone was upset as we all knew what an amazing show was about to be seen so get ready for West End Proms 2017 as it is going to be amazing.”
