The ever-popular “Night at the Proms” concert was held on the evening of Thursday 21 June 2018.  It was utterly brilliant !

With a full capacity audience (300 people) in the large marquee the evening was very well supported – and what a treat everyone enjoyed.   If you couldn’t come along this year, why not make a diary note for 2019 to buy tickets in late May/early June?  

Many thanks to all who donated raffle prizes for this event.

This was a traditional “Night at the Proms” concert by the Torbay Symphony Orchestra.  The audience enjoyed stirring traditional flag waving and singing along with those old favourites, Land of Hope and Glory, Jerusalem and Rule Britannia.
