AN orchestra will have a licence to thrill at a special James Bond concert being held in Hatfield.

WHEN you think of the James Bond movies, spectacular stunts, glamorous girls and the famous theme music instantly spring to mind.

And the de Havilland Philharmonic will have its own licence to thrill on Sunday at a special James Bond 50th anniversary concert being staged in Hatfield.

With filming of Skyfall – Daniel Craig’s third outing as the secret agent – currently taking place, it’s the perfect time to celebrate 50 years of 007.

The University of Hertfordshire’s resident orchestra presents a glittering evening of music at The Weston Auditorium, on the de Havilland Campus, to mark the occasion.

Enjoy themes and incidental music from the classic action movies such as Diamonds Are Forever, You Only Live Twice and Goldfinger.

The event will also feature a special guest appearance by the versatile vocalist and popular Bond diva Mary Carewe.

She has sung under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle, Kurt Masur and John Rutter, with the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra respectively.

Her now long-established artistic relationship with Carl Davis has led her to sing both James Bond and Oscar Winners programmes with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, among others.

The concert takes place on Sunday at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £20 full, £15 concessions and £6 children, and are available to book through the UHArts box office on 01707 281127 or online at www.herts.ac.uk/artsandgalleries
