Bond, the biggest-selling string quartet, have been announced as special guest stars for the Culture Classic concert at the Blue Bell Hotel, Burton Agnes.

The group, comprising three violinists and one cellist, who played a part in the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony, will perform with Welsh Diva Katherine Jenkins at the popular establishment on Saturday 31 May.

Bond have sold more than four million albums and travel the world performing at major festivals.

Organisers of the event are now on the lookout for a couple of local artists/singers to showcase their talents at the Culture Classic event.

Events manager Glen Greenwood said: “I can announce that Bond will be playing at the Culture Classic event. They are special guests to Katherine Jenkins on the evening.

“The sales for the concert are going very well and now we are looking at local artists to expand the bill.

“We have had a few submissions that myself and the management team are looking at and hopefully we will have some announcement regarding our decision at a later date.

“Obviously we are welcoming more as you can never have enough to look at.

“With Katherine bringing a full orchestra there’s not too much room for manoeuvre, but we hope to have plenty of acts on the bill.”
