Sandra Shaw from Secret Garden with Lichfield District Council's Rhiannon Purkis

Businesses are being urged to help make the Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park better than ever.

The free family event takes place on September 1 and organisers Lichfield District Council are hoping lots of sponsors will come forward to help raise the money needed to help stage the outdoor concert.

Set to appear on stage are the British Police Symphony Orchestra and the City of Lichfield Concert Band, while a fireworks finale will help end the summer in style.

Lichfield florist, Secret Garden, which has sponsored Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park from the beginning, are coming on board for another year providing the beautiful flowers that line the stage and the bouquets that are presented on the night.

Sandra Shaw, of Secret Garden, said: “This is the 14th year we’ve sponsored Lichfield Proms and we’re proud to be a part of this huge event. It helps us to get our business noticed by thousands of people and is the highlight of our summer.”

Sponsors can benefit from their logos appearing on posters, leaflets, the glossy programme, news stories and on the Lichfield Proms website. Sponsors also have prime seats at the event – right in front of the stage. Sponsorship packages range from £50 to £2,000, and companies can also take advantage of a special corporate entertainment package.

Councillor Val Richards said: “We couldn’t stage Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park without our local sponsors.

“Sponsoring the event is a great way to show your support for the local area and your brand will be seen by thousands of people from across the region. Whether you can offer £50 or £2,000, your contribution will be appreciated and will help make this year’s event possible.”
