Tickets are selling fast for a musical extravaganza which will mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on the weekend of the special Bank Holiday celebrating her reign.
Songs spanning the entire era of her 70 years on the throne will be performed at the Victoria Hall, on Knowsley Street, Bolton, on Saturday, June 4, starting at 7pm.
The climax of the evening will be a Last Night of the Proms sing-along featuring Wigan mezzo-soprano Vicky Little, accompanied by renowned piano/organist Shade Black.
Money raised from the event - organised by Bolton Lever and Wigan Rotary Clubs - will go to Bolton Hospice and Wigan and Leigh Hospice.
The band The Beatroots, fronted by TV's The Voice finalist Linda Jennings - who was mentored by Sir Tom Jones in the show - will play hits from the 1950s to the 1980s while The Nick Jackson Band will play songs from the 1990s to present day.
