FANS of the Last Night of the Proms who don’t fancy trekking down to the Albert

FANS of the Last Night of the Proms who don’t fancy trekking down to the Albert Hall are being invited to enjoy the occasion a little closer to home this year.

The Sue Ryder Nettlebed Hospice at Joyce Grove is inviting the public to join them for a night of cheer on Sunday, September 12.

Hospice spokeswoman Miriam Payne said: “Pack a picnic and bring out the bunting for this evening of music and family fun.

“We’ll be screening the Last Night of the Proms live on a big screen for you to enjoy as you stroll through our beautiful grounds, relax with friends and family and soak up the last of the summer.

“With live musical performances, food and flag-waving aplenty, this is one event you won’t want to miss.

“A free cocktail is included with every adult ticket and alcohol will be available for purchase. You are also welcome to bring your own.

“Well behaved dogs are welcome.”

Food and drink will be available to purchase on the night, but ticketholders are advised to bring a blanket or something to sit on.

With just over a month to go until the big night, Sue Ryder is offering an early bird special on adult tickets for the “Picnic at the Proms” event.

The normal price for adult tickets is £25 â?? with tickets for children under 16 priced £10. Groups of 10 or more adults pay £20 a head.

It is this discounted rate that is available on adult tickets booked before Monday, August 31.

Those taking up the offer will also be entered into a prize draw to win the ultimate Proms picnic package. This includes:

• Being chauffeured to and from the event in a Jaguar XE

• Luxury hamper for four

• Bottle of Laurent-Perrier Champagne

• Two complimentary Picnic at the Proms tickets.

The draw will be made on Tuesday, September 1, and the winner will be notified by phone. Terms and conditions are available on request.

Davis Tate estate agents and Ridgeway Jaguar are sponsoring the event, which starts at 7pm and will include live musical performances, food and flag-waving aplenty.
