The City of Lichfield Concert Band will kick off the event on Saturday (September 2) at 5.30pm when they perform numbers from the movies, including Disney and James Bond, as well as family favourite Beauty and the Beast.

The main concert will begin at 7.30pm when the British Police Symphony Orchestra take to the stage at 7.30pm.

The 75-piece orchestra is conducted by Richard Jenkinson, who will be joined on stage by experienced compere, Danny Mizon.

Together they will take concert-goers through the main programme on the night, which includes music from Madame Butterfly, Romeo and Juliet, Dances with Wolves, Lawrence of Arabia, Lord of the Rings, The Magnificent Seven as well as Sea Songs and more.

The evening will end with a fireworks finale and all the proms anthems, including Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Pomp and Circumstance No 1.

Richard said: “Our line-up includes something for everyone, combining popular film and TV music, with lesser known pieces that I know the audience will love. A highlight for me is the beautiful Mozart duet from The Marriage of Figaro, which featured in film, Shawshank Redemption.”

Lichfield District Council’s free proms will also feature the three singers, Claire Prewer, Jane Stevenson and Nick Pilborough.

    Hope Chakraborty & fellow lefties from the guardian didn’t notice this. Already an article on-line slagging LNOTP for xenophobic colonialism or something, you know, people having a bit of a sing-song and waving flags.
    At least they’re never stuck for something to hate.

    It was a lot of fun, Rob. Even for some of us wooly lefties.

    But you’re right, some people will always find something or somebody to hate.
