Sadly, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have had to cancel the 2020 and 2021 festivals.

Summer Moon’s night of “Hope and Glory”

The ever-popular “Night at the Proms” concert will be held on Thursday evening of the festival.  Concert starts at 7.30pm.  Gates open at 7pm.  This is an “advance ticket sales” only event, due to its popularity, so if you do not have a ticket we regret that you will not be able to buy one on the gate.  

The concert is due to finish at around 10pm.  If you think you might need to leave before the end of the concert, may we suggest that you find a seat towards the back so that you can leave without disturbing other concert-goers.  Thank you.


With a full capacity audience (300 people) in the large marquee the evening is very well supported.  For this reason, tickets are sold in advance only. 

Advance ticket sales will close several days before the date of the concert as this is a very popular event!

Tickets are £10 per person and they will be available for the next festival from Glynis at the Garden Gate (01803 873534) and Chris at The Village Salon, 22 Fore Street, Kingskerswell.  Tickets are subject to availability and there will be no tickets available on the gate.

This is a traditional “Night at the Proms” concert by the Torbay Symphony Orchestra.  It is held in a grand marquee, with seating for 300 people.  It is not a “Proms in the Park” style concert, so please do not bring your own picnic, drink or chairs.  No alcohol is allowed on site other than as provided at our bar.  You may wish to bring a car blanket, if the evening is likely to be cool – and a cushion for your seat if you wish.

The audience enjoys stirring traditional flag waving and singing along with those old favourites, Land of Hope and Glory, Jerusalem and Rule Britannia.

In June 2019 we had a truly amazing soloist joining the orchestra:   Jayden Lamcellari, on the cello.  He is sixteen years of age and has already had an amazing musical career.

The programme was:-

BEETHOVEN – Egmont Overture

SCHUMANN – Cello concerto in A Minor   Soloist Jayden Lamcellari


SHOSTAKOVICH – Excerpt from Symphony no 5 in D Minor

Pomp & Circumstance March No 1 – Sir Edward Elgar

Fantasia on British Sea Songs – Sir Henry Wood

Jerusalem – Sir Hubert Parry

A few words from the Orchestra….

“We are as always looking forward to playing at this lovely venue where we are made so welcome by the enthusiastic audience and it has become a real pleasure to play”
