Dr Felicia Kirk & Brigadier Greville Bibby CBEHosted by BBC Radio 3 presenter Petroc Trelawny, and with an address by Brigadier Greville Bibby CBE, the atmosphere throughout the evening was electric.

The Treorchy Male Choir, one of the greatest choral ensembles of all time, performed a wide range of music from traditional Welsh songs to an uplifting rendition of You Make Me Feel So Young.
