Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park – August 2022

Welcome to LDC News, Proms in the Park Bulletin
Final preparations are being made for one of the most popular events in the district’s calendar – Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park.

The free concert, which attracts thousands of music-lovers every year, will be held on Saturday 3 September and a fantastic, varied programme has again been arranged for this special evening.

The highlight of the district’s social calendar

From 6pm music will be performed by The City of Lichfield Concert Band, a community wind band featuring 45 musicians of all ages from across the area playing a mixture of popular classical music, medleys, jazz, film scores and pop tunes.
The British Police Symphony Orchestra will then treat fans of the stage and silver screen to a wonderful selection of scores including Ukrainian Melody, from the 1981 movie High Pass, Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 featured in the classic cartoon Tom & Jerry’s The Cat Concerto, Nessun Dorma from Turandot and Alfred Newman’s 20th Century Fox Fanfare.

Its set list, beginning at 7.30pm, also includes the Star Wars Suite, a selection from Carousel and culminates in Proms favourites Rule Britannia, by Thomas Arne, Hubert Parry’s Jerusalem and for the firework finale Elgar’s Pomp & Circumstance No 1 and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.
Bring your picnics and chairs to Beacon Park for the Proms and enjoy a wonderful evening of music in good company. Food will also be available together with a Fun Zone for children, and deckchairs will be available for hire for the Proms at £10 each.
