Proms in the Park 2020

Published Monday, 02 March 2020

HINCKLEY’S Hollycroft Park will come alive with the sound of music when the popular Proms in the Park concert returns on Saturday 22 August.

Organised by the Borough Council and Hinckley Round Table, Proms in the Park is returning by popular demand following a five year hiatus.

The free open air concert will feature performances from the Bardi Orchestra who will play a selection of popular music culminating in a rousing climax with the playing of traditional favourites including Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia. 

This year’s concert is designed to appeal to families and groups of all ages, with Hinckley Round Table organising fun activities in Hollycroft Park, food and drink stalls, and will be fundraising for local charities.

Andy Waring, Chairman of Hinckley Round Table said:

We are delighted to be working with the Borough Council on this event. We are best known for our Santa Sleigh in December but the rest of the year we are having fun and raising more money for local charities and causes. This free concert is great for the local community, and Hinckley Round Table has been a part of this community for 73 years so we are very proud to be a part of it.

Councillor Keith Nichols, Executive Member for Culture and Leisure at Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council said: “The Proms in the Park is a great event and I hope as many people as possible come along and enjoy the great musical talent on offer in the lovely park setting.”

The event will start at 5:30pm with the concert starting at 6:30pm. The event is due to finish at 9pm.
