Soprano Marsh’s debut album topped the classical chart. She has an impressive opera repertoire and appeared as a special guest for artists including Jose Carreras and Russell Watson. Tenor Pacheco won more fans while Katherine Jenkins’ guest on her Daydream tour. His debut album is out this September.

Event producer David Mansfield says: “Natasha Marsh gave a fantastic performance two years ago when she performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Christchurch Park and Nathan Pacheco has been described as having “a voice that will open your heart and touch the soul from the very first note”. It’s going to be a very special performance.”

Gates open at 6pm so ticket holders can enjoy their picnics before the performances, which start at 8pm with the evening ending around 10pm.
