Newport gears up for Saturday’s Proms and Prosecco in the Park

Rehearsals are being stepped up as excitement mounts for Proms and Prosecco in the Park, at Chetwynd Deer Park, Newport, on Saturday (14 September).

 

Leading British West End star Jon Moses will top the bill at the third annual Proms and Prosecco event which brings an exciting mix of top class live music, family entertainment, artisan food stalls and drinks to Newport.

Advance tickets are still available and there’s an opportunity to pay on the gate from 2pm on Saturday.

Music lovers will be treated to six hours of high class live performances, from 3pm, culminating in a stunning proms finale at around 8.45pm.

The varied programme, put together by experienced Newport based events organisers, Fizz Festivals Ltd, has something for everyone, with an eclectic pop to classical crossover vibe.

“It really is a fun day out for all the family,” said Esther. “Jon Moses, our headliner has starred in nationally acclaimed performances of Jesus Christ Superstar and plans to treat the Newport crowd to a set featuring  classical, pop, rock and roll, musical theatre.

“Also high on the bill are Classical Reflection who rose to prominence on TV’s The Voice and have musical influences range from Abba to the classics. In addition, we have an electric string quartet, a choir and local Swing influenced vocal harmony group, The Ronnies, and the evening ends with a glorious proms finale including rousing renditions of standards such as Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory and lots of flag waving!”

For the first time this year, there is a covered tented bar area, which will be a friendly space for people to mingle and enjoy a drink, whatever the weather. Currently, the weather forecast is good for Saturday.

The family friendly vibe even extends to the family dog, who is welcome at the event in exchange for a £2 donation to the Dogs Trust.
