DetailsThe Queen's Platinum Jubilee - 70 Years
is the very first high-profile event to take place in this unprecedented year of celebrations marking the Queen's seventy years of service. Hosted by the BBC's Sophie Raworth, it will feature music performed by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, conducted by Mike Dixon. Works by Great British composers including Edward Elgar, Benjamin Britten and William Walton will take centre stage, with a focus on music played at Her Majesty's 1953 Coronation and other key moments of the Queen's reign. With 124 visits to the Hall during her lifetime, this event holds particular poignancy. Special guests will recount their experiences of meeting the Monarch as the nation celebrates this special anniversary in our nation's history. The event is in support of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, which is proud to present this momentous evening in celebration of its Royal Patron.
