Battersea Park In Concert is set to debut Aug. 26-28 with a lineup that promises a “bonanza of Classical, West End musicals, Soul & Jazz,” at London, England’s Battersea Park.

The 60-piece Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra will kick things off on nights one and two, performing hit songs from the West End stage (Aug. 26), as well as classical masterpieces from composers including Tchaikovsky, Elgar, Puccini, and others (Aug. 27).

Day three will see a selection of the finest soul and jazz talent the UK has to offer share the stage; Gabrielle, who charmed the audience at another London park, when she opened for Adele’s 2022 BST Hyde Park shows, celebrates the 30th anniversary of her breakthrough single “Dreams” this year.

Other performers include double MOBO award winning British saxophonist YolanDa Brown, and The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, the legendary venue’s own band. Their performance will pay homage to the club’s rise from a basement bar where local musicians would jam to the internationally acclaimed establishment it is today – a fascinating story Pollstar recently delved into, as well.

The promoter of the event is Enable, a non-profit organization, working in partnership with London’s Wandsworth Council “to deliver health, leisure and community services and events that enrich people’s lives,” by its own admission.

Various day and weekend tickets for Battersea Park in Concert are on sale. Proceeds will go towards Enable’s charitable causes.
