“We’re thrilled the British Police Symphony Orchestra is playing at this year’s proms and we’re all looking forward to hearing the soloists, who I am sure will be in fine voice on the night. And, what with The City of Lichfield Concert Band warming up the crowd, as well as children’s entertainment and food and drinks on sale from 5pm, and local celebrity, Jane Dayus-Hinch, taking to the stage as compere for the night, it promises to be a fantastic evening for the whole family. “So, grab your hats and flags and join us for an evening of music, al fresco dining and community cheer.”For the latest Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park news and offers, visit www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/lichfieldproms.
