Now in its 40th year, this iconic event which is a highlight of the summer season is set in the most spectacular location and natural amphitheatre in front of the beautiful Leeds Castle, reputed to be the loveliest castle in the world. People in their thousands attend the stunning setting of Leeds Castle to be entertained by this amazing open-air musical delight.
The first concert took place in 1978 and to celebrate, along with much loved classical favourites, the audience will be treated to a special finale including greatest hits from the 70s era. This special Ruby celebratory event will have a real birthday party atmosphere throughout the summer’s afternoon and evening.
Internationally respected conductor John Rigby will once again command the stage, this year not only conducting the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra but also acting as compere and host with special guests the Band of the Grenadier Guards. Leeds Castle is delighted to support ABF The Soldiers’ Charity by allowing us to collect during the evening.
