WFEL Fairey Jubilee Celebrations


WFEL Fairey Band was recently involved in filming for The National Lottery’s Big Jubilee Street Party at the AO Arena. The show was recorded in front of a live audience of 10,000 and combines exciting performance collaborations from some of the biggest names in music; Kaiser Chiefs, Tom Grennan, Steps, Becky Hill, Heather Small - The Voice of M People, Calum Scott, House Gospel Choir, Nathan Dawe and Ella Henderson and was hosted by Jason Manford and Fleur East. The band had the accolade of opening the show, a video of which can be viewed on its Facebook page. 

The AO Arena floor was transformed into a stunning street party setting, festooned with lights, trestle tables and colourful bunting to act as the stage for the immersive multimedia show. Host Jason Manford said: “I’m delighted to be hosting The National Lottery’s Big Jubilee Street Party at Manchester's AO Arena in honour of The Queen. It'll be a huge celebration of our monarch’s extraordinary reign and a night of fantastic entertainment. The audience is in for a real treat.”

Fleur East added “The National Lottery’s Big Jubilee Street Party is going be the perfect way to kick start the Jubilee celebrations and we’re looking forward to keeping you company for the night, so get your family and friends involved for what will be a wonderful evening. With such an excellent star-studded line-up, and some special audience guests too, it is going to be such an exciting evening of celebrations!”

The event will be aired by ITV on Sunday 5th June to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee.
