ON THE BILL: The Enemy, above, and Katherine Jenkins, right

Welsh soprano singer Katherine Jenkins will open this year’s Whitehaven Diamond Jubilee Festival, on Friday June 1.

The event is being held in celebration of Her Majesty the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, and Katherine, who has been busy in America appearing on Dancing with the Stars, will be joined on stage by the National Symphony Orchestra.

The following day will see a return to the 70s with six acts performing their collection of number one hits. Acts include The Real Thing, Odyessey, The Three Degrees, Showaddywaddy, Lee McKeown’s Bay City Rollers and Steve Harley and the Cockney Rebel.

Headlining on the Sunday evening and ending the celebrations will be The Enemy, fresh from their gig on the roof at Wembley Stadium prior to the FA Cup final. The Enemy, whose hits include We’ll Live and Die in These Towns and Away from Here, will also be debuting new material from their third and long-awaited new album Streets in the Sky. Indie rockers The Charlatans will also be on stage performing a selection of their popular hits including One to Another and North Country Boy.

There will be a host of celebrities over the weekend, including chefs Jean Christophe Novelli and Ainsley Harriott, Coronation Street barmaid, Michelle Collins and Strictly star Anton Du Beke. There will be street entertainers, tall ships and markets and the Red Arrows will be performing their famous air display. A selection of acts will be performing on the CFM stage where Robbie Dee will broadcast his show live.
