World renowned operatic singer Alfie Boe took a break from the West End to travel back to his Lancashire roots for an exclusive surprise birthday appearance.

Guests at Mellor-based Stanley House Hotel and Spa were given a night to remember as the singing sensation adorned the stage to celebrate the 90th birthday of hotel owner Mrs Nora Walker.

Acclaimed in his operatic roles and as Jean Valjean in the musical theatre version of Les Misérables, Alfie took to the stage to treat 70 Stanley House guests to a glittering performance comprising ten of his top hits plus a stunning rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’.

Mrs Walker, wife of the late Fred Walker, co-founder of Walker Steel, said: ‘Alfie’s my absolute favourite.

‘He performed at the Queen’s 92nd birthday last year, so to have him headline my celebrations was a real dream come true.

‘His performance was outstanding. I’m so grateful my wonderful family created such a starry night of surprises.’
