In pictures and video: Katherine Jenkins headlines 2013 BBC Proms in the Park at Titanic Slipways, Belfast

Classical superstar Katherine Jenkins wowed thousands of promenaders at Belfast's Titanic Slipways on Saturday where she topped the bill at the BBC's Proms in the Park.

The mezzo soprano joined Phil Coulter and the Ulster Orchestra for the Last Night of the Proms celebrations in Belfast, while performances took place simultaneously in London, Caerphilly and Glasgow.

The gorgeous Welsh superstar gave her usual flawless and powerful performance, singing Carmen's Habanera and Time to Say Goodbye (scroll down for video).

Londonderry's Phil Coulter had the audience belting out Ireland's Call, and the orchestra, conducted by David Brophy, entertained with classical favourites including John Williams's themes from Jurassic Park and Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Now in its 12th year, the Belfast Proms also featured Lithuanian accordion player Martynas, who recently topped the classical music album chart, and virtuoso violinist Chloe Hanslip.

And there was a sneak preview of a new show from the makers of Riverdance, Heartbeat Of Home.

Hosted by broadcasters Noel Thompson and Claire McCollum, a special highlights programme on BBC NI and BBC Four will be aired at a later date.
