Thousands of music lovers took to the Titanic slipways for the BBC Proms in the Park celebration of music on Saturday night.

The event was celebrating its 15th anniversary and drew 11,000 people to Belfast. As well as a performance by the Ulster Orchestra, artists included soprano Lesley Garrett, Broadway performer John Owen-Jones and Londonderry pianist Ruth McGinley.

The event here was one of a number taking place across the UK to coincide with the Last Night of the Proms. Many concert goers at London's Albert Hall showed their solidarity with the European Union by waving EU flags.
