‘Poppy’ proms at The Lawn

MARKET Rasen (RPC) Band holds its sixth annual Proms to Poppies concert on Saturday, October 29.

And this year there is a new venue for the popular event: for the first time the concert will be held at The Lawn in Lincoln’s Union Road.

As the band continues to both grow in strength and develop as a musical unit, this year’s concert promises to be the best ever with music from Grieg, Rossini, Dvorak and Offenbach, the exciting finale coming from the William Tell overture.

In addition, there will also be the traditional Last Night of The Proms servings, with Rule Britannia, Elgar’s Nimrod and Pomp and Circumstance.

The ever-popular nostalgic wartime songs will this year be introduced with a medley of Glenn Miller favourites, followed by We’ll Meet Again, White Cliffs of Dover and many others.

As always, an exceptional evening of nostalgic entertainment is assured, and the band is looking forward to meeting friends old and new.

Tickets for Proms to Poppies, costing £8 and £6, are available from The Lawn directly, or call Mick Tindall on 01673 842733, the band secretary on 01472 840870, or email flugelplaya@hotmail.co.uk .
