AT THE height of the great British summer, Last Night At The Proms will bring an extra dash of patriotic fervour to The Playhouse Theatre this month.

The concert will celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee and continue the proud tradition of the British proms concerts.

The event will be held at the High Street theatre on August 26 and will feature a range of traditional prom favourites performed by the full British Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.

The programme will include flag-waving favourites Rule Britannia, Jerusalem, Sailor’s Hornpipe and Land Of Hope And Glory.

It also includes Crown Imperial, Zadok The Priest, Scotland The Brave, Waltzing Matilda, The Elizabethan Serenade, a Beatles medley and a host of other eclectic tunes.

The show will be presented by Mark Langley, with solo performances by Jeni Bern and Andrew Forbes Lane, and will be accompanied by images of the Queen’s 60 years on the throne.

The orchestra was founded in 1996 by Jeremy Peaker and Russell Swift, and has performed hundreds of concerts across the country since.
