As if you're not already looking forward to our traditional end-of-summer celebration The Darley Park Concert enough, we've also just confirmed that Classic FM's Saturday lunchtime presenter Nicholas Owen we return to host the event!

The event will be taking place on Sun 6 Sep, from 6pm and East Midlands orchestra Sinfonia Viva will perform a programme based on the theme of couples. The theme has remained dominant in musical history right up to the present day – from famous collaborating composer-and-lyricist teams, sensational performing duos, to the many thousands of songs and melodies which explore the highs and lows of relationships between people in or out of love.

Listeners will be taken on a journey with a cinematic twist that embraces John Williams’ timeless film theme Superman before enjoying Freddie Mercury and Mike Moran’s 1987 modern classic Barcelona that came to prominence as the ‘theme’ song for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.

If you want to take the hassle out of the evening the why not pre-order one of our picnic hampers? You can choose from a meat, fish or vegetarian hamper, which includes Aioli served with crusty bread, herby new potatoes, summer fruit trifle, strawberries and cream and x 2 glasses of wine! Our hampers are £25 and are suitable for 2 people.
