Thousands turn out to enjoy the 2016 Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park

Thousands saw off the summer in style at the Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park last weekend.

Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet member for leisure and parks, said: “Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park once again pulled out all the stops and ended the summer in style.

“Proving the weather man wrong, the evening was a wonderful mix of stirring music, beautiful singing and fireworks in the beautiful surroundings of Beacon Park.

“Proms is a huge event to stage and I would like to thank the organisers and the parks staff and volunteers who made sure the event ran smoothly on the night. Our sincere thanks also goes to our sponsors and everyone who made a donation on the night.

“And finally, a big thank you must also go to the City of Lichfield Concert Band, The British Police Symphony Orchestra, the 4th King’s Own Regiment of Musketeers, the singers and compere, who made it such a memorable evening.”
