Bradley Stoke Proms in the Park 2018.

By Andy Ward of the Bradley Stoke Carnival Committee.

Saturday 14th July sees a new community event taking place in Bradley Stoke. Instead of the carnival that traditionally takes place on the last weekend in August, the Carnival Committee thought it would be nice to bring something a little different to the town and so the Jubilee Green [BS32 8HL] will instead be playing host to ‘Proms in the Park’. This is a free-to-attend community event and will feature a family-friendly line up of live music, culminating with a traditional Last Night of the Proms style sing-along.

The gates open at 3pm and live music starts at 4pm, with the first of two sets from Rock Pipes, followed by Storm Force Ten, who will bring a nautical theme to the evening with traditional sea shanties. Rock Pipes then take the stage for a second set before the Worlewind Concert Band take over for the rest of the evening.

During their first set, the amazing 50-strong wind band will take to the stage and entertain you with their take on some modern classics as well as some unique arrangements of popular tunes that you will all know and love.

Banner for Bradley Stoke Proms in the Park.

By Andy Ward of the Bradley Stoke Carnival Committee.

Bradley Stoke Carnival takes a break this year, although the Carnival Community Zone (inflatables) will make an appearance at the Bradley Stoke Festival in June instead. However, it’s not all bad news as the Carnival Committee thought it would be nice to bring a new event to Bradley Stoke this year, and so on Saturday 14th July, ‘Proms in the Park’ will take place on the Jubilee Green.

It will be a free community event put on for the town and kindly supported by Bradley Stoke Town Council and the Willow Brook Centre, amongst others. The occasion will be a ‘community picnic / bring your chairs and a blanket’ type event, so you can sit down in the early evening and enjoy Live performances from two amazing live acts as well as the main event with a 50-piece wind orchestra bringing the Last Night of the Proms to life here in Bradley Stoke.

Bring your singing voices as you join in with the traditional Proms classics such as Rule Britannia, Land of Hope and Glory, Jerusalem and many more of your traditional proms favourites alongside some other well known classics.

The evening commences at 4pm (gates open at 3pm) with a set from the spectacular Rock Pipes followed by some traditional sea shanties from Storm Force Ten, a second set from Rock Pipes and then the main event of the evening when the WorleWind Band take to the stage to perform the first of two sets (with an interval) culminating with a traditional sing-along Proms ending.

Union flags and bowler hats will be available on the evening and all we ask is a small donation of your choosing to our chosen charity on the night.

On site catering will be available, as will a few small children’s rides such as the Tea Cups etc. Bradley Stoke Town FC will be running their popular bar.

Please remember this is a community picnic event, so do feel free to set up your spot on the field and settle down and enjoy a traditional evening of early summer entertainment with a lovely picnic – it’s an ideal event to get all the family together. You are welcome to bring along and set up gazebos etc., but we would ask that you site them to the left or the right of the main viewing area, and if in doubt seek advice from a marshal before setting up.
