South Holland Centre’s monthly update
Since the installation of digital cinema at the South Holland Centre a few years ago, local audiences have enjoyed a wide range of exceptional national and international events without leaving the area. The programme not only includes broadcast screenings from the likes of the National Theatre and Royal Opera House, but also an array of one-off specials that audiences have taken to their hearts… and there are a couple of corkers coming up this summer.
Booked by popular demand is André Rieu’s spectacular Maastricht concert on Saturday 23 July at 7pm. Set against the stunning medieval backdrop of the town square in André’s Dutch hometown, this highly colourful concert features ‘The King of Waltz’ himself, violinist and conductor Andre’ Rieu, alongside his world-famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, sopranos, tenors and special guests.
André said: “Every year we find ways to make my hometown concerts a unique experience for our audiences in the square, as well as those who watch us in the cinemas. We put a lot of time, energy and love into creating something special, some Maastricht magic”.
Audiences worldwide have fallen under his spell and tickets for this broadcast screening are already selling fast.
Then on Saturday 30 July, footie fans and anyone craving a shot of nostalgia can experience ‘World Cup ’66 – Live’ beamed live onto our big screen from Wembley Arena. This unique event marks the anniversary of England’s historic World Cup win: re-telling the story of that game, in real time exactly 50 years to the day, and featuring BBC presenters, a live orchestra and some of today’s biggest musical acts performing hits from 1966.
Names of the performers are being announced all of the time but so far the confirmed line-up includes Lemar, Reef, James , The Troggs and the cast of the hit musical Sunny Afternoon. Punters can enjoy the footie atmosphere with fellow fans in our all-seater ‘stadium‘ for a 2.30pm kick-off .
This is one game at least, where satisfaction is guaranteed!
