Published Wednesday, 11 February 2015

The evening will feature compositions from Debussy, Bizet, Britten, Schumann, Puccini and many more.

The event, which has been arranged by the Friends of Forty Hall Park, sees the bar open bar at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start. The concert finishes at 10.00pm.

All proceeds will go to the Friends of Forty Hall 'Save Our Bees' project which aims to attract and protect bees. This is done by planting bee-friendly flowers, the reduction in pesticide use and the erecting of 'bee boxes' in the park.

Tickets cost £12.00. They can be booked online at Link by calling 020 8363 8196, or in person at Forty Hall.

Jo-Ann Brown, the Event's Organiser from the Friends of Forty Hall Park said "We are incredibly lucky to have gathered together a galaxy of stars for one night at Forty Hall.

"Sopranos and tenors will be gathering in the acoustic long gallery to give a mesmerising performance. Tickets are going quickly so buy yours now before they sell out."

Cllr Rohini Simbodyal, Enfield Councils Cabinet Member for Culture, Sport, Youth and Public Health said "Forty Hall is the ideal location for an operatic evening.

"Led by the stunning vocals of Claudia Haussmann, the performers will fill the Hall with song. Why not buy a glass of champagne from the bar, sit back and enjoy this fantastic evening, and all for a very good cause."
