Thousands of people bid a farewell to summer by enjoying the sounds of the 2017 Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park.

Taking place last Saturday (September 2), the event saw music from the City of Lichfield Concert Band and the British Police Symphony Orchestra.

The evening ended with a traditional proms finale and a fireworks display.

Councillor Mark Warfield, Chairman of Lichfield District Council, said: “It was a tremendous success, with thousands of people coming together to enjoy a superb evening of good music in the beautiful surroundings of Beacon Park.

“The musical line-up had something for everyone, combining popular film and TV soundtracks with some exciting not so well known pieces.

“The audience clapped and cheered, waved their flags and sang in all the right places, and seemed to have a thoroughly good time.

“A big thank you must go to all the proms team who work so hard to organise Lichfield Proms, and to all the sponsors who help to support this spectacular event.”
