Classics with added fizz

British soprano Mary-Jess Leaverland – winner of the Chinese X-Factor – is to headline Shropshire’s Proms and Prosecco in the Park 2018. Also taking to the stage on Saturday 8 September are electric-acoustic ensemble String Infusion and operatic tenor Jack Foley.
The classical music extravaganza at Chetwynd Deer Park in Newport will once again coincide with the Last Night of the Proms and is set to attract thousands of prom-goers from across Shropshire and neighbouring counties.

Esther Wright, director of Newport-based Fizz Festivals, says she wants to keep a few surprises up her sleeve for prom-goers; “What we can say, however, is that this year’s Proms and Prosecco is going to be another spectacular event with beautiful music, plenty of fizz and a very relaxed atmosphere… pack your picnic baskets, dig out the blankets, and gather friends and family together for a wonderful afternoon and evening of entertainment.”

There will also be food and drink stalls, children’s entertainment and a dedicated Prosecco bar. Gates open at 2pm with music playing from 3pm until 9pm.
