Proms and Prosecco in the Park is being staged at Weston Park for the first time in 2019 by Fizz Festivals, the company behind highly successful Proms and Prosecco events in nearby Newport, Shropshire, in 2017 and 2018.
The event serves up a heady mix of classical music, the West End musicals, choral music and classic pop, topped off with a glorious proms finale with rousing renditions of standards such as Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory.
Organiser and WiRE member Esther Wright said: “We want people to bring the whole family, picnic tables and chairs, sit back and relax in a warm, friendly atmosphere.
Fizz Festivals is dedicated to serving up outdoor events with great music, fabulous street food and, of course, plenty of fizz, craft ales and gin. We have attracted almost 2,000 people to Proms and Prosecco at Chetwynd Deer Park in each of the past two years.
I’m delighted to announce that this year, Fizz Festivals have partnered with well-known drinks brand Aperol for our Weston Park events meaning that every guest aged over 18 will receive a free glass of Aperol Fizz on arrival.”
Proms and Prosecco is just part one of two days of live music put on by Fizz Festivals at Weston Park during the late May Bank Holiday weekend.
The Fireflies Festival, on Bank Holiday Monday, will have a pop and rock vibe, featuring a diverse mix of singers and bands, with a headline performance from Take This, a leading tribute act whose A Night Of Take That show has won wide acclaim. There will also be free children’s activities including crafts and a circus skills workshop from the highly acclaimed Circus Mash based in Birmingham.
Esther said: “The two events have a different vibe but there’s a huge audience out there for high quality live music of any genre and we are offering the opportunity for people to come to both, or just one, with a range of ticketing options. Our Earlybird tickets are on sale until the end of April, or until sold out and under 10’s come free. We also have camping passes available for those that want to make a weekend of it.”
