Join Swadlincote Proms in the Park

Date: Sunday, August 18; Time: 2pm - 6pm

Location: Maurice Lea Memorial Park

Common Road

Church Gresley


Cost: Free of charge

Brief details: Following the huge success of South Derbyshire District Council's inaugural event last year, this year we will be welcoming two fabulous bands to entertain us:

Force Ten Big Band will take to the bandstand at 2pm with a varied and exciting programme featuring classic big band swing, jazz, funk, soul and pop.

At 4pm, Nottinghamshire’s Blidworth Ensemble Brass Band will play through until 6pm. An established and extremely successful contesting and concert band, you can be assured of a first class performance including all of the traditional Proms favourites.

Don't forget your flags!

Bring your chairs or picnic blankets and some food too, although there will be Hey Sugar selling cakes, strawberries & cream and savoury bites; Dalton’s Dairy will be selling homemade ice cream and sorbets; and a glass of fizz will be available from the Hop and Bubble horsebox bar to toast the afternoon away.
