“We’re all delighted to be invited back and will be playing a varied music programme, which includes many of the most popular pieces of music and songs that have featured in the last fifteen years of Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park,” Tom said.

“I am excited to be introducing the main concert with Danny, and look forward to welcoming the crowds to this summer’s Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park.

“As this will be my last Lichfield Proms as conductor of The British Police Symphony Orchestra before handing over the reigns at the end of the year, it will be an extra special night.”

The evening will also feature solos from the tenor Mitesh Khatri and proms newcomer, soprano Sarah Ryan.

“As I come from Lichfield, it will be lovely to sing so close to home with all my friends and family in the crowd,” Sarah added.

The City of Lichfield Concert Band will warm up the crowd from 6pm on the night with music from the likes of The Beatles and ABBA as well as hits from the movies.
