Goldfinger, From Russia with Love and Skyfall will be given the full orchestral treatment in the first half of the show, followed by Nobody Does It Better and Diamonds are Forever in the second half, with many more high energy anthems from the Bond oeuvre

Impressive illuminations designed to showcase each number will add to the enjoyment of hearing familiar songs played live by the full string, brass, woodwind, percussion and electronic sections of the orchestra in this beautiful historical venue

The orchestra draws on freelance musicians from across the country and Durham is well representedThe audience may recognise home grown talent during the performance

Limelight Musical Director Paul Murphy said: "The orchestra is made up of some of the best musicians handpicked from around the country, some of whom originate from the north east and have played at the Cathedral beforeWhile this will be my first visit to Durham with the orchestra, many of the musicians have described how amazing it is to perform in the Cathedral, so we’re really looking forward to this show.”

Principal Violin Anna Downes said, "We are so excited about performing amazing orchestrations of music from John Barry to Hans Zimmer and our vocal tributes to artists from Shirley Bassey Adele."
