Live music is due to be performed on 40 bridges around the UK for the second annual BBC Music Day.
Choristers Only Men Aloud will kick off events at 06:30 BST playing a new song with Amy Wadge on the Severn Bridge.
Jack Savoretti will perform on London’s Tower Bridge, while the Tees Transporter Bridge, Middlesbrough will come alive with music through the day.
Music Day culminates with a concert at Cornwall’s Eden Project, starring Duran Duran, Nile Rodgers and Laura Mvula.
Billed as a UK-wide celebration of music, there will be hundreds of events and special concerts around the country.
In Bristol, a children’s “vegetable orchestra” will be led by Shaun The Sheep at Colston Hall; while the Ulster Orchestra will perform in the grounds of the Stormont Parliament Buildings in Belfast.
During the day, the homeless group Streetwise Opera will go into a recording studio for the first time to record their self-penned finale to The Passion; while rock band Travis will play a one-off, free show with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in Glasgow’s Barrowlands venue.
Pop star Will Young will serenade workers at Bristol’s Pukka Herbs tea factory, marking the 75th anniversary of Workers Playtime, a Home Service programme which was started to boost morale among workers during the Second World War.
A UK-wide bell-ringing event is also planned for 19:00 BST, with more than 50 church towers ringing simultaneously, including Bristol and Manchester cathedral and smaller parish churches such as Saint Francis Xavier’s in Liverpool and St Mary’s in Turville, Buckinghamshire.
Meanwhile, CBBC will premiere a new version of the Danger Mouse cartoon’s theme tune, sung by young fans who submitted videos to the channel.
