Yorkshire Celebrates The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee At Scarborough Open Air Theatre

Yorkshire’s Platinum Jubilee Concert was filled with a sea of red, white and blue as the county’s queen Jane McDonald led fans in a regal celebration at Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

“It’s such an honour to be doing this in Yorkshire,” Jane told Northern Life ahead of the concert. “And don’t forget, it’s just once in a lifetime that this will happen.”

Following an instrumental opening of God Save The Queen, Jane walked onto stage to rapturous applause and cheers. A 90-minute set of crowd pleasers followed as Jane performed favourites which included medleys of Abba, Cher, Queen and Disco hits as well as a nod to Dame Vera Lynn with We’ll Meet Again and a rousing, flag waving rendition of Land of Hope and Glory.
