Will there be a big screen showing the Last Night of the Proms live from the BBC?

Proms & Prosecco in the Park is not a live screening of the Last Night of the Proms from the BBC. There are only 4 such screenings around the UK in major cities. Proms & Prosecco in the Park is a live music event featuring music from soloists, choirs, quartets and quintets, with all of the favourites from the Last Night of the Proms.

Is Proms & Prosecco in the Park suitable for families?

Absolutely, the event is suitable for all generations. Tickets for under 13’s are free of charge, but please note that you do still need to order a ticket for children under 13. All children must be accompanied by an adult and we have lots of activities for children as well as acres of space for them to run around and stretch their legs! We encourage you to get a big family group together as there will be something for everyone!

Will there be fireworks at Proms & Prosecco in the Park?

This event does not have fireworks.

 Can I bring a table and chairs to Proms & Prosecco in the Park?

This is an outdoor event with no seating provided, so please do bring your own seating. We are encouraging everyone to bring picnic blankets, table, chairs and any home comforts to help you settle in for a relaxing afternoon and evening.

What happens if it rains at Proms & Prosecco in the Park?

In the Great British spirit, Proms & Prosecco in the Park will go ahead regardless of the weather! It is an outdoor event, so please bring clothing suitable for the weather. Wellies, brollies and anoraks will be useful if it’s raining, but hopefully it will be sun hats and sun creams that are required!

Is Proms & Prosecco in the Park suitable for people with a mobility issue or disability?

Yes, it is. We have disabled parking right next to the seating area and the ground is very flat. You are welcome to pick the best spot for you to enjoy the event, whether that’s close to the stage, car park, toilets or food stalls. Our friendly marshals will be very happy to provide any other assistance that is required. If you need more information in advance of the event, or if you have any questions, please contact us on hello@fizzfestivals.com or 01952 482005.

What time does Proms & Prosecco in the Park start?

The gates to Chetwynd Deer Park will open at 2pm and the live music begins at 4pm. The event is scheduled to finish at 9pm, so there is still time to get home and see the finale of Last Night of the Proms on TV!

How do I use my e-ticket for Proms & Prosecco in the Park?

·         Simply print the tickets that were sent via email when you placed your order

·         The e-ticket is all you will need to gain entry to the event. Please treat your ticket like cash! Keep it safe and don’t let it get wet.

·         Your e-ticket will be scanned when you arrive at the event to gain entry.

·         Tickets will only scan once. If they are duplicated or presented for a second time, they will not work and staff will be alerted that fraudulent use has occurred. Only the first scan of a ticket will be valid.

·         Whilst we are able to scan e-tickets stored on mobile phones, we strongly advise you to print your tickets in advance as wifi connection cannot be guaranteed at the event and it is your responsibility to present a valid e-ticket. Sometimes, screen covers, scratched or damaged screens will prevent the e-ticket from being read by our scanners, so a printed ticket really is best!

Is Proms & Prosecco in the Park an annual event?

We certainly hope so! The event is in its first year, so we are very much hoping that it will prove to be really popular and we can bring the event to Newport every year to mark the Last Night of the Proms.
