Lichfield Proms  takes place on Saturday 6th September and three fabulous singers will be taking to the Lichfield Proms stage for the very first time. 

Welcoming sopranos Claire Prewer, Jane Stevenson and Lynne Linder, the three passionate singers will join The British Police Symphony Orchestra at 7:30pm to sing a wide range of songs including The Flower Duet, Song to the Moon, Ride of the Valkyries as well as some proms favourites such as Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia.
