Dates have been confirmed for next year’s Symphony at the Tower concerts.


The shows, which support St Catherine’s Hospice, see big name acts headlining Hoghton Tower.

This summer’s shows saw James Blunt and Katherine Jenkins perform.

St Catherine’s, and gig organisers Cuffe and Taylor, are promising two very special acts as the events will be the culmination of the hospice’s 30th anniversary celebrations.

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.

“The 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.”

The dates for the two concerts are Friday 3 July 2015 and Saturday 4 July 2015.

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 momentous milestone and I am sure that Symphony at the Tower will be a fitting occasion to celebrate this achievement.”

Organisers say the announcement of the two headliners was due in the coming weeks.
