Shipston Proms 2016

Stratford Editorial 8th Feb, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

MUSIC of all kinds will be heard at the 18th Shipston proms this June.

The two week festival will feature classical, pop, folk, blues, heavy rock, and more starting on June 17 with the return of beatbox outfit Duke, 2015 Fame Contest winning local band Brixton Alley and local DJ Dirty Harry, performing at the Townsend Hall.

The Fame Contest, on June 18 at the Townsend Hall, will again offer local musicians the chance to play on the main stage on the Proms last night.

Classical music includes The Orchestra of The Swan, the Shipston Town Band and Young Musicians night at St Martin’s church Barcheston.

World music comes from Leamington-based community samba band Sambassadors of Groove, and folk is supplied by the Stratford Folk Club which will be setting up stage in town.

Throughout the fortnight there will be musical events every day in schools, halls, and pubs in the town and surrounding villages.

And the curtain will be brought down in the now traditional style with the free concert in the town square with a Goin’ Local theme with the two Fame Contest category winners local bands Kinky Farnham and Wired.
