The orchestra will then be joined by award winning international cabaret sensation Barb Jungr, Time Out New York’s Best Cabaret Artist whose “supple voice is an immaculate instrument – spellbinding” (The Times). Special guests are Urban Voices Collective who performed at London 2012 Olympic Games Opening and Closing Ceromonies, and local born and bred singing sensation Jane Buttigieg.
Take a picnic and enjoy fantastic entertainment with your family, friends and neighbours (seats will be available).
