Lesley, from Epworth, is a patron of the charity that provides vital interactive musical experiences for people living with dementia across the region and nationally.

The September 26 event will be held at Wentworth Woodhouse and will include a drinks reception accompanied by Ampleforth Piped Band, a tour of the house’s famous state rooms and a four-course meal with wine, as well as entertainment throughout the meal from Lost Chord’s professional musicians.

The highlight of the evening, at the largest privately-owned house in Europe, will be Lesley’s performance of some of the opera world’s greatest arias.

“Lesley was with us for our 15th anniversary dinner at Wentworth Woodhouse last year and the occasion was such an enormous success that we were truly delighted when she said she would be happy to join us again,” said Lost Chord chief executive Helena Muller.

“Places for this incredible evening are strictly limited and we do recommend an early response to avoid disappointment as this is a rare opportunity to hear one of the world’s great sopranos singing in a fabulous historic setting. By supporting this fantastic evening, you will be helping to raise vital funds for Lost Chord and transform the lives of all those living with dementia.”
