A very special concert in our 30th birthday year – and a night of epic film scores. Here are all the photos from Classic FM Live with Viking, celebrating the greatest music written for the big screen.

Classic FM Live with Viking returned to the Royal Albert Hall, for a spectacular celebration of the greatest movie music.

Classic FM’s Orchestra in the South of England, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and their Chief Conductor Kirill Karabits were joined by a host of star soloists in a night hosted by Classic FM presenters Alexander Armstrong and Margherita Taylor.

The night was filled with the greatest movie music, which you can hear again in a special concert on Tuesday 11 October at 8pm on Classic FM, and afterwards on Global Player.

So… lights, camera, and here’s all the action:
