Event description

Description

Bedford Proms takes place on Sunday 6th August in Bedford Park and our theme this year will be ‘Proms Goes To The Movies’. Expect all your favourite classics but also some exquisite renditions of popular film soundtracks, which will appeal to the whole family.

The concert will feature some very special guest soloists. We are very excited to welcome back Australian Tenor Daniel Koek, who wowed us in 2015 when he was our headline performer. Daniel played Jean ValJean in Les Miserables in the West End and his rendition of ‘Bring Him Home’, was spine tingling. We were overwhelmed with requests to bring him back to Bedford and we are very pleased to welcome him back. The second act to be confirmed is rising classical star, soprano Joanna Forest. Completing our line-up will be world renowned opera star Alison Buchanan, originally from Bedford but now residing in America. Alison will fly back especially for our event. We are so excited to have three world class soloists on our concert line up.

The London Gala Orchestra and the Bedford Choral Society will return and the laser show begins in the second half when night time falls. The evening will conclude with a spectacular firework display.

To fit in with our movie theme, we have some special additions to the night including the DeLorean Car from Back To The Future, which will delight both adults and children alike! We also have some stunning owls joining us to fit in with a magical movie theme soundtrack, we think both muggles and wizards will love them! Guests will be able to take pics, and view the owls as well as ask their keepers any questions. Plus some other news to come!

We look forward to welcoming you back to Bedford Park for an evening of pomp and patriotism that the whole family can enjoy.
