The singer will perform on the grounds of Lancashire’s historic Lytham Hall on Sunday 28th August.
With tickets going on sale this Friday at 9am, Alfie Boe will headline this special Last Night of the Proms concert alongside a full orchestra while the concert will be opened by special guest and fellow Broadway and West End star John Owen-Jones.
The concert is being presented by Lytham Festival directors Cuffe & Taylor, and follows on the success of their WonderHall festival last summer which saw £153,000 donated to the continued restoration of Lytham Hall from the Russell Watson Proms concert. All money raised from Alfie’s performance will also be gifted to the Grade 1 listed venue.
Lytham Festival Presents Last Night of The Proms will be the first time Alfie has performed on the Lancashire coast since his sell-out Homecoming show at Fleetwood Town FC in 2018.
Talking about the news, Alfie said: “I cannot wait to get back to perform on homeground. As a proud Lancastrian it will be very special for me and to stand in front of an audience which I am sure will have many familiar faces is just the icing on the cake. This will be a brilliant night in a magical setting and I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
As well as having become a successful recording artist, Alfie Boe is also known for starring in productions of Les Misérables as Valjean in both the West End and Broadway, the 25th Anniversary Concert and most recently the London Staged Concert, the lead role of Jimmy in The Who’s Classic Quadrophenia, while also wowing audiences in theatre performances including La Bohème, Finding Neverland and Carousel.
Meanwhile, he will be joined by John Owen-Jones, who is also known for his portrayal of Jean Valjean in Les Misérables in the West End and on Broadway – and still holds claim to being the youngest actor in history to have played the role. He has also played the title role in The Phantom of The Opera more than any other actor in the show’s West End history.
