The sounds of the City of Lichfield Concert Band and the British Police Symphony Orchestra produced another memorable evening with a mixture of popular and classical tunes.

“Lichfield Proms in the beautiful surroundings of Beacon Park is such a great way to end the summer,” said Cllr Val Richards. “The night was wonderful with stirring music, beautiful singing, fireworks and a fantastic crowd that waved their flags, sung along with gusto and cheered throughout the concert.

“We were very lucky with the weather as it was a balmy late summer evening, which meant this year’s concert was more crowded than ever. The night was a huge celebration of British music and it made me feel so proud to be a part of this wonderful night.

“Proms is a huge event to stage and I would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to organise it, as well as our sponsors and everyone who made a donation on the night.

“A big thank you must also go to the City of Lichfield Concert Band, The British Police Symphony Orchestra, our amazing singers and comperes, who made it such a memorable evening for us all.”
