The Proms will start with a world premiere of Mark Simpson’s ‘Sparks’ along with other musical treats including; the works of Verdi, Rodgers, Puccini and the ‘Olympic Fanfare and Theme’ from John Williams.
The finale to the evening will feature the classics of Rule Britannia, 'Land of Hope and Glory', ‘Jerusalem’, and ‘The National Anthem’.
Craig Willcock, cultural development officer said: “Why sit at home and watch the Proms when you can come along with your friends and family and enjoy live entertainment in Guildhall Square?
“Bring a flag, a chair or cushion, pack a picnic and wear warm clothes.”
A free programme, song sheet and flag will be available on the night.
