Visitors will be able to enjoy the sounds of two orchestras and two choirs on the West lawn of the Cathedral or within the medieval building.

Patricia Collins, director of fundraising at Lichfield Cathedral, said: “We are delighted that seats, both inside and out, are selling like hot cakes – the more people here the greater the celebratory atmosphere will be and the more raised for the Cathedral’s East End Appeal.”

John Sergeant will be the guest presenter of this celebratory evening, which will feature music including coronation anthems Zadok the Priest and I Was Glad, together with film footage plus live cameras relaying images of the concert throughout the Cathedral and excerpts from the Queen’s Coronation in Westminster Abbey in 1953.

Adrian Jackson, Lichfield Garrick’s artistic and executive director, added: “The Jubilee Proms concert in Lichfield Cathedral was always set to be a tremendously popular evening, but to sell out so quickly and have to release even more seats is just superb.

“Not only will there be a remarkable atmosphere both in and around the Cathedral, but we are now guaranteed to raise considerable charitable funds for the Cathedral’s East End Appeal”.

The evening will feature the combined talents of the Cathedral’s resident Darwin Ensemble Chamber Orchestra together with the City Concert Orchestra. The concert will also feature Soprano Elizabeth MacDonald, the Lichfield Cathedral Choir and the Lichfield Cathedral Chamber Choir.

Tickets can be booked through the Lichfield Garrick box office on 01543 412121 or online at www.lichfieldgarrick.com.
