Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park is back with a bang!
Supporters launch the event to end the summer in style, which will take place on Saturday 4 September.
Back for 2021, Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park promises to be an evening of live music, picnics, singing and flag waving, topped off with a fireworks finale.
Now in its 22nd year, the line-up will see children’s activities and refreshments from 5.30pm, Eureka Jazz warm up the crowd as they find their places from 6pm, and the main concert by the British Police Symphony Orchestra from 7.30pm.
The free entry event organised by Lichfield District Council for the whole community is supported by local companies and organisations.
Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet Member responsible for Parks, said:
“I know everyone will be thrilled to see the return of Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park this summer.
"I would like thank all our sponsors, who are helping us make sure this event can continue to be free for everyone. I would also like to thank Cocker Hoop Creative, who are putting on the Ibiza Proms the evening before, for working alongside the council and contributing to the two days of proms in Beacon Park.
“We can’t wait to welcome everyone back to Beacon Park on the Saturday evening to enjoy a free night of music and the chance to come together outdoors with family and friends.
“With high levels of Covid cases, even though restrictions are now relaxed, we would still encourage audience members to use a face mask when moving around, use hand gel and help maintain a safe distance from your neighbours during the event.”
2021 sponsors so far include: Strongs Plastic Products Ltd, Prizm Solutions, Morespace 4 U, Lichfield Chamber of Trade & Commerce, Allen Brown Jewellery, Beacon Street Garage, The Best of Lichfield, Blueprint Designs, Grosvenor Shutters, C Residential, Wilcox Refinishers and Secret Garden.
