Councillor Bob Awty, Chairman of Lichfield District Council, said: “What a fantastic evening.

“We had record numbers, with thousands joining us to celebrate our 20th year of Lichfield Proms. It was a joy to see everyone having such a great time, waving their flags, enjoying the music and the atmosphere.

“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, and to the brilliant musicians for thoroughly entertaining us.”
