We look forward to seeing you on 2nd July for what promises to be a wonderful evening of music, fireworks and family fun.

 

Weather update - Saturday 2nd July:

The sun is shining and conditions at the games field are fine; there's a bit of a breeze but this is expected to die down later and we don't expect any further showers so Proms 2016 is good to go.

Cars will be allowed to park on the field at a cost of £5.00 per standard car and tickets can be purchased on the gate at a slightly higher price (see above).

We look forward to seeing you all from 6pm this evening!
