Throughout the day on Saturday, there will be a huge number of events and of course, in the evening, the drummers will call to the masses to watch them perform before the night skies are filled with beautiful fireworks which are to be fired from the top of the Queensgate Shopping centre.
On the Sunday, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will take the crowd on a musical journey through the world of theatre from the West End to Broadway featuring pieces from Les Miserable, Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, Kiss Me Kate and many more. This is a chargeable event and will take place Sunday 7th September at 7.30pm in the Broadway Theatre.
