IF you revel in all things jubilee then the Last Night at the Jubilee Proms concert could be just for you.

On June 26 the Riverside Theatre in Woodbridge will host a wonderful celebration performed by the Locrian Ensemble.

There will be many favourites including Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia and Jerusalem.

In true Last Night tradition the Locrians will also perform beautiful classics by composers such as Mozart, Puccini, and Novello.

The Locrian Ensemble is one of Britain's most sought after musical groups and they are constantly in demand.

They have recorded music for some of the most respected composers and have played the scores for Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.

British composers will also be well represented on the evening with the music of Elgar and Coates.

To end the celebrations there will be a special tribute to the Queen Mother with a moving rendition of Bach's Air on a G String.

Lavish costumes and an evocative candlelight setting will make it an evening to remember.

The Locrians will be joined at the theatre by Covent Garden soprano Christine Teare, who as Britannia, will lead the singing, flag waving, and streamer throwing in the memorable finale to a special musical evening.

If you would like tickets then please call the theatre on 01394 382174.
