The City of Lichfield Concert Band started off the music from 6pm, playing a selection of popular classics and pop favourites, while the audience found their places and set up their picnics.
This led to the main concert which featured The British Police Symphony Orchestra and singers, Claire Prewer, Jane Stevenson and Lynne Lindner. This year’s musical programme had something for everyone, including popular classical music, songs from operas, film scores and all the proms anthems.
The concert was compered by the orchestra’s principal percussionist, Danny Mizon, who got everyone into the celebratory spirit and led the waving of the ‘lighty-uppy things’!
The evening was brought to a close with a fireworks display to the stirring sounds of Land of Hope and Glory (Pomp & Circumstance No.1).
We waved our flags, we sang, we waved our ‘lighty-uppy things’, we sang, we ate we drank and we sang and had a thoroughly great evening.
Many thanks must go to the organisers and the sponsors of this fabulous FREE event.
Roll on next year I say!
