The life and music of the legendary Matt Monro will be celebrated at FTH

And that complement was paid event though Matt’s recording of Sinatra’s theme song My Way sold eight million copies in the Philippines – outselling old blue eyes’ version of the tune.

All Matt's great songs will be covered on the night – from the Impossible Dream to Portrait Of My Love and, of course, Born Free.

You can get a taste of the man and his music at FTH from 6.30pm.
