A flagship event for St Catherine’s Hospice will return in 2015 - promising to be the biggest and best year yet as the charity celebrates its 30th anniversary.

Symphony at the Tower, a two-night musical spectacular held in the grounds, of Hoghton Tower will take place on July 3 and 4.

The line-up is due to be announced imminently, but will follow the same format as the previous two years, with a music gig on the Friday, followed by a classical concert on the Saturday.

This year James Blunt and Katherine Jenkins took to the stage.

Next year’s event will also provide the finale to the hospice’s anniversary awareness month.

Lorraine Charlesworth, Director of Income Generation at St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “We’re very excited about next year’s Symphony at the Tower, which we know will provide the perfect finale for our special month of 30th birthday celebrations.

“Last year’s shows with James Blunt and Katherine Jenkins were incredible. The atmosphere was fantastic as people came together to enjoy great music with friends and family, while spreading the word about St Catherine’s Hospice and raising important funds.

“We look forward to welcoming back previous Symphony goers and to seeing new faces at next year’s event, which we’re sure is going to be our best year yet.”

Peter Taylor, Director of Cuffe and Taylor, said: “We are delighted to be working with St Catherine’s once again.

“The last two years of the partnership have gone from strength to strength and we really enjoy working as a team to raise the profile of the hospice and much-needed funds through a programme of live music.

“Also, with 2015 being the hospice’s 30th anniversary we are thrilled to be part of this momentous milestone and I am sure that Symphony at the Tower will be a fitting occasion to celebrate this achievement.”
