Almondbury Wesleyan Cricket Club, Huddersfield, HD5 8XT

On Sunday 16th June 2024, legendary musical theatre star Michael Ball will play an intimate picnic in the park style gig at Almonbury Wesleyan Cricket Club.

HARMONIES & HAMPERS will give concert-goers the unique opportunity to see Michael in an informal and relaxed setting, whilst enjoying their own picnic and soaking up the atmosphere.

Michael is best known as Britain’s leading musical theatre star, for his extensive body of work across many popular musicals, and for his duets alongside his great friend and collaborator Alfie Boe. He is also frequently seen on TV and has been listened to by millions on his regular BBC Radio ‘Sunday Morning with Michael Ball‘ show.

He has recently been invited to take over the reins of Radio 2’s flagship ‘Sunday Morning Love Songs’ request show, following the untimely and unexpected death of long-standing host and highly respected radio presenter Steve Wright.

Michael remains committed to live performances in a wide variety of places and different formats. Following his sell out theatre and concert hall based ‘On With the Show’ UK tour Michael now invites a more than 2000 strong mid-summer Yorkshire audience to bring along their own chairs, blankets and picnics to the event so they can sit and enjoy listening to him in ‘Picnic in the Park’ style setting.

Michael will be supported by special guest Jenna Lee-James, who joins him fresh from the London’s West End, where she has been performing as lead character Elsa in the stage version of Disney’s Frozen. Jenna previously toured with Hugh Jackman as his featured vocalist on his World Arena Tour ‘The Man, The Music, The Show’. She has worked extensively as a leading artist and soloist in the West End and on tour in the UK, including performing in concert with Take That at London’s O2 Arena. Jenna also just released her debut album ‘On the Edge’, recorded at the iconic Abbey Road Studios.

Concert promoter and Almondbury Wesleyan Cricket Club Committee member Mark Binns said “The chance to see Michael in such an informal concert setting is an opportunity not to be missed. Because I can’t imagine Michael will ever come back to Almondbury again in his life!”
