HINCKLEY’S Hollycroft Park will come alive with the sound of music when it hosts the popular Proms in the Park concert on Saturday 14 June.

Organised by the Borough Council, this year's free concert will feature two local school orchestras. Redmoor High School Orchestra will open the event with a programme of music to commemorate the centenary of The Great War conducted by Sue Jackson.

Proms stalwarts, the John Cleveland College Orchestra, conducted by Garry Sleath, will then begin their programme with a selection of show music. The evening will reach a rousing climax with the playing of traditional favorites including Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia.

This year proms-goers will be able to bring along a picnic and be able to purchase hot and cold drinks courtesy of “The Friends of Hollycroft Park”, for those with a sweet tooth “Mary’s Sweet Memories” will be attending and if you run out of food or want to supplement what you already have “Fresh Delights” will have Fruit kebabs, Salad Boxes and Wraps available.

Councillor David Cope, Executive Member for Culture and Leisure, said:

“The Proms in the Park is a great event and I hope as many people as possible attend and enjoy the great musical talent this area has to offer in the lovely park setting ".

The event will start at 6.00pm with the concert starting at 6.30pm the event is due to finish at 9.00pm.
