It will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation with music played at the ceremony and music by Benjamin Britten to mark the East Anglian composer’s centenary.

The festival will end on Saturday, July 27, with a performance by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, which will include Schubert’s “Great” Symphony.

Other highlights include saxophonist Courtney Pine and his band, who will be performing at the Corn exchange on Friday, July 19. Hannah Stone, the Prince of Wales’ harpist, will be performing at All Saints Church on Thursday, July 25.

As the programme was unveiled for the first time, artistic director Ambrose Miller said: “It will be a wonderfully lively festival, maintaining its tradition of excellence but also introducing some new features.”
