Merton Council’s director of environment and regeneration, Chris Lee, said: “So many people enjoyed last year’s Classics in the Park, so it’s thrilling to see this festival of music blossom into something that will offer a treat for everyone. Horrible Histories is brilliant for the younger audiences and the Rat Pack classics are timeless. It’s great to see City of London Sinfonia back for a second year too, all set to charm audiences with their beautiful music.”
