Katherine Jenkins Returns To The Park
Katherine will perform on Saturday 14 July in Victoria Park, Haywards Heath for what will be her seventh performance in the town.
Having signed the biggest recording deal in classical music history at the young age of 23, Katherine officially became the world’s most successful artist in UK Classical chart history when her latest album ‘Celebration’ became her 12th UK Classical No. 1 album in 12 years. She has performed for the Pope, Presidents and Royalty – including performing by special request at Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations. Most recently Katherine wowed audiences and critics alike with her stellar performance as Julie Jordan in Lonnie Price’s semi-staged production of Carousel at the London Coliseum.
Accompanied by the National Symphony Orchestra, she will appear alongside special guest John Owen-Jones, best known for playing the titular role in The Phantom of the Opera and Jean Valjean in Les Miserables.
The announcement comes after tickets went on sale this week for It’s Magic Events’ annual Summer Festival of Music, a five-day community initiative staged to raise funds for local good causes.
Tim French MBE, founder of It’s Magic Events, said: “We are delighted to welcome Katherine back for our Summer Festival this year. She has a one-of-a-kind talent, and we’re grateful that she is lending her support to these three worthy charities. We’re excited for what will be an unforgettable concert and I encourage people to bring their rugs, chairs and picnics for a lovely summer’s evening in the park.”
The Katherine Jenkins concert will take place in Victoria Park, Haywards Heath on Saturday 14 July at 7.30pm.
Adult tickets cost £30 (£35 on the gate) while entrance for children (5-15 years old) is £15. Discounts apply for groups of 10 or more.
