Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement on the final unlocking of Covid rules in England, Heritage Live has announced the rescheduling of its outdoor concerts at Englefield House, in Theale, West Berkshire.
Despite the shows taking place just after the newly proposed 19th July unlocking date, the set up and build for the events would have to begin from 12th July for concerts of this size, with no guarantee that they would be able to go ahead. As such, Heritage Live have taken the terribly difficult and heart-breaking decision to reschedule for 2022 when it will be able to guarantee three wonderful nights for audiences at Englefield House.
Last Night of the Heritage Proms with Russell Watson will now take place on Sunday 24th July 2022. All original tickets remain valid.
Englefield House and grounds will provide a spectacular backdrop to a an outdoor concert with one of Britain's most loved singers, Russell Watson, on Sunday 24th July 2022.
The Last Night of the Heritage Proms with Russell Watson shows will feature the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra conducted by David Arnold, as well as featuring composer arranger and producer Mike Moran, coloratura soprano Christina Johnston, and very special guests The NHS Choir.
Watson will perform songs from across his 25 year career, from much loved standards such as Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Swing Low, through to affirming and uplifting showstoppers including You Raise Me Up and Bring Him Home, alongside a very special Phantom Of The Opera medley.
£1 from every ticket sold for the event will be donated towards the NHS Charities Together, the collective representing, supporting and championing the work of the NHS’ official charities.
