Proms goers are being urged to reserve their prime seating at tables ahead of this year’s Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park, which is on Saturday 2 September 2017.
Now in its nineteenth year, Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park brings thousands of people together from across the region to enjoy an evening of music, picnicking and a firework finale.
While it’s a free event, and everyone is welcome to bring their own seating and picnic blankets, for just £12.50 music lovers can book prime seats at tables in front of the stage.
Councillor Iain Eadie, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, said: “We all look forward to Lichfield Proms each year, as it’s the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer in the beautiful surroundings of Beacon Park with what feels like half of the district!
“Booking prime seating at tables in front of the stage is a great way to enjoy the concert in style and comfort. There’s always a fantastic atmosphere in the prime seating area, so don’t forget to secure your places ahead of proms.”
This year’s concert is set to feature music from the City of Lichfield Concert Band and The British Police Symphony Orchestra. The night will be brought to an end with a firework finale and rousing proms anthems.
The event also includes activities for children, food and drink stalls and a proms shop, where concert-goers can stock up on their patriotic flags and hats.
Prime seats cost £12.50 each and can be bought in fours or sixes. To reserve a table in the prime seating area, go to www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/lichfieldproms to find out how to book and pay online, alternatively call Lichfield District Council on 01543 308867 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parking will be available on the night at Beacon Park for a donation of £5, which includes a Lichfield Proms programme.
