Now into its third year, this popular event, renamed for 2014 to 'Proms in the Peaks', has all the essential elements for an enjoyable and relaxing afternoon's entertainment with friends and family.
The headline acts are world-famous Tenor, John Hudson, and International Soprano, Deborah Norman with BBC Radio Sheffield presenter, Paulette Edwards playing Master of Ceremonies.
The event, which has previously been held in Nottinghamshire, will be held at the new venue of Losehill Hall YHA, Castleton, which will add a stunning backdrop to this increasingly popular music event.
The concert starts at 2.30pm but the grounds will open at 1pm for those wanting to enjoy a picnic beforehand.
Weston Park Hospital is one of only four dedicated cancer hospitals in England and treats patients from all over South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and North Derbyshire.
The hospital serves a population of 1.8million people across the region, and the Cancer Charity plays a vital role in helping to continually improve the treatment and care for people living with cancer.
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Cancer Charity is encouraging the people of North Derbyshire and beyond to fly their flags high and proud at this unique event in support of the 11,000 patients currently affected by cancer in the county.
Alongside the headline performances from John Hudson and Deborah Norman, the creative programme will also feature Junction 33 Dance Band, reviving the spirit of the Glenn Miller era, plus a performance by Bel Canto, one of South Yorkshire’s premier chamber choirs.
Providing an energetic contrast to the musical performances, street dance group DanceDaze will delight the audience to a lively and mind- blowing performance that will be sure to get them on their feet!
Tina Harrison, Deputy Director of Fundraising, said: “We are really excited about holding this fantastic event in Derbyshire next week, and very grateful to Losehill Hall YHA for providing such a beautiful setting for what will be a simply wonderful afternoon.
"The charity receives a lot of support from the people in Derbyshire and as it’s our first event in the Peak District, we hope that local people will join us for what promises to be an extraordinary afternoon in support of a vital and worthy local cause.
With guests and supporters travelling from as far as America to attend this prestigious event, the charity are hoping for a large turn out for this musical spectacular.
Guests are encouraged to bring along their own picnic hampers and chairs and sit back to enjoy this musical feast, with a full bar, Pimms tent and cream teas to enjoy too!
Alistair Boyd, General Manager of Losehill Hall YHA said: “We jumped at the chance to stage this event and work with Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.
“With an exciting line up and perfect location for a picnic- we’re excited to be hosting such a unique event.”
“Tickets are still available and a steal at just £15 per person- so get yours today to avoid disappointment!”
The Cancer Charity needs to raise over £2 million this year to help keep Weston Park Hospital at the very forefront of cancer treatment.
Dr Omar Din, a Clinical Oncologist from Weston Park Hospital who works out of Chesterfield Royal Hospital on a regular basis and who will be attending the event, said:
“It’s fantastic that Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity is hosting an event in Derbyshire and inviting the local people to join in this unique late summer's afternoon of musical entertainment.
“Our work in this area is crucial for providing patients with radiotherapy and emergency or complex treatments closer to home, and I am proud to be joining the charity on Sunday 7th September and I will be flying the flag high for my patients!”
