Featuring Star Wars, Superman, E.T., Harry Potter, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park, Lincoln, Summon the Heroes, Jaws, Angela’s Ashes, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and many more.

Saturday 12th August


10 years after its first outing at Meyrick, the brilliant celebration of Queen’s iconic rock songs returns. Featuring full rock band and stars from the West End smash hit musical We Will Rock You, combined with the complete BSO, ‘stunning’ and ‘awesome’ are just two of the words which have been used to describe this concert experience. Bringing you all the iconic rock songs performed by stars of London’s West End including Seven Seas of Rhye, Don’ Stop Me Now, Radio Ga Ga, I Want to Break Free, We Are The Champions and of course Bohemian Rhapsody.

The evening also sees the return of the superb son et lumière show of lasers, lights, flames and fireworks, choreographed to another specially created soundtrack.
