A musical feast of “titanic” proportions is set to return to one of Belfast’s most iconic landmarks.

The Titanic Slipways will once again play host to BBC Proms in the Park on Saturday, September 13 – giving local audiences the opportunity to join in the music-making spectacular that is the Last Night of the Proms.

The event, supported by Belfast City Council and now in its 13th year, will see some big name artists from home and abroad performing alongside the Ulster Orchestra.

Hosted by Noel Thompson and Claire McCollum, this year’s concert will be bigger than before, with more than 3,000 additional tickets available – taking the total ticket allocation to 11,000.

Viewers at home will be able to join in via the Red Button on digital television and the concert will also be streamed online. BBC Radio Ulster will also be live on the night with presenter John Toal.

Peter Johnston, Director BBC Northern Ireland, said: “This event is one of the most ambitious outside broadcasts we undertake each year, with demand for tickets always exceeding supply.”

Tickets are complimentary and will be allocated following a random draw.

Ticket applications can be made from 9am today until 5pm on July 14.

A maximum of four tickets will be allocated per household address.
