The popular Mayor of Neath Port Talbot’s Remembrance Concert returns to the princess Royal Theatre on Friday 27 October and will feature a first-class line-up.
Welsh singing star Sophie Evans will be the special guest.
Sophie rose to fame when she came runner up out of 10,000 hopefuls in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Over the Rainbow’ in 2010, resulting in her becoming ‘alternate Dorothy’ at the London Palladium at the age of 17.
She has since gone on to perform all around the world with amazing performers such as Alfie Boe, Michael Ball, Paul Potts and Kerry Ellis Webber, has enjoyed great critical acclaim as Glinda in the West End production of Wicked, and is a familiar face in film and on TV.
The evening will also feature performances from Number 3 Welsh Wing Royal Airforce Air Cadets Military Marching Band, NPT Cerdd Youth Band, Neath Male Voice Choir and the City of Swansea Pipe Band.
The Mayor of Neath Port Talbot, Councillor Chris Williams said:
“I am delighted to see this important event return so we can all show our support to the people who make up our Armed Forces community, from troops currently serving, to service families, veterans and cadets.
“The concert will be a really special evening and I am happy to welcome Sophie Evans as our guest star. Sophie is an extremely talented singer and has performed with some of the big names in show business.
“The evening will end with the last post and thousands of falling poppies, the official emblem of remembrance.”
Tickets: £10 for adults or £8 for concessions (under 16, over 60 and Armed Forces Veterans) and can be purchased from the Princess Royal Theatre or online at www.npttheatres.co.uk/princessroyal
