Panto stars at Darley Park

Tue 20 Aug 2013

Cheryl Fergison & Marcus Collins to perform at The Darley Park Concert

We're excited to announce that the headline stars of this year’s panto, Jack and
the Beanstalk will be performing at The Darley Park Concert on Sunday 1 September.

X-Factor finalist Marcus Collins and EastEnders' Cheryl Fergison - who you may seen flexing her vocal chords recently on ITV'sYour Face Sounds Familiar - will perform towards the end of the evening, just before the fireworks finale. Cheryl will perform Rock Around the Clock, with Marcus singing Don’t Stop Me Now

Both songs connect nicely to this year’s theme – Time, which was chosen to mark the 300th anniversary of the birth of John Whitehurst, the Derby clock maker upon whose work the Smith’s clock factory in Derby was founded.

Hosted by Classic FM’s weekday show drivetime presenter John Brunning, with orchestra
Sinfonia Viva, conductor James Holmes and soloist Grant Doyle, this year’s concert is sure to be the highlight of the city’s Outdoor Events calendar.
