LANCASHIRE-based Progress Housing Group is sponsoring the annual fireworks and musical extravaganza that is the Symphony at the Tower for the 17th year.

The St Catherine’s Hospice annual event at Hoghton Tower is a memorable evening for all, with performances this year from international superstars James Blunt on July 4, Katherine Jenkins and the National Symphony Orchestra on July 5.

As part of the housing group’s 20th anniversary celebrations, this year it will sponsor both the Friday and Saturday nights , as well as inviting a number of its tenants from across the UK, to the Friday show. The group is also offering half price tickets to staff.

Chief executive Jacqui De Rose said: “As an organisation at the heart of the community, we are proud to be associated with an event that supports local people in need.”
