For the first time in its 150-year history, the world-famous Royal Albert Hall plays host to a very special concert behind closed doors.
The event will mark VE Day on Friday 8 May. The half-hour concert will be streamed to audiences around the world via YouTube at 6pm.
Katherine Jenkins will sing wartime favourites including ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’ (lyrics HERE) and ‘We’ll Meet Again’ (lyrics HERE); the latter performed as a virtual duet with Dame Vera Lynn. The performance will close with a rendition of ‘Jerusalem’, one of Britain’s best-loved hymns.
The concert will pay tribute to the fallen men and women of the Second World War and salute the country’s VE Day Veterans, It is also our opportunity to thank the Armed Forces who, alongside the NHS and many others, are coming together to serve the country.
Live-Stream of the Event will appear below, live on Friday 8 May at 6PM:
