AmpRocks will kick off the annual festival on June 30 in Ampthill Park.

Musical fans are in for a treat with Julie Atherton and Oliver Tompsett, who between them have played the lead roles in Wicked, Avenue Q, Mamma Mia and We Will Rock You, signed up to perform and host the evening.

Ampthill Festival chairman, Ian Scarr, said he was over the moon to have sealed such high profile acts.

He said: “We are delighted to have secured internationally renown artists again for AmpRocks in The Human League, Busted and Cast.

“It’s something for everyone and with the tweaks to the festival site, enhanced bar and food concessions, the evening will be great value and the best experience in the region once again.

“The Proms enters its 9th year and with two West End performers, again we have punched above our weight.”
