The Line Up
Bedford Park Proms will be returning on 2nd August 2020 to celebrate its 25th anniversary in style, with a magical night of classical music and spectacular lasers and fireworks that promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
Some of the UK’s most eminent soloists will join the London Gala Orchestra and the Bedford Choral Society for a stunning silver anniversary celebration, featuring the most inspiring classical pieces and all of the flag-waving favourites that the whole family can enjoy.
Mark Harrison, Bedford Park Concerts Founder, said: ‘To have reached the 25th anniversary of Bedford Park Proms is a huge achievement that I am really proud of. Our event is now one of the longest running Proms in the UK and is an unmissable date on the Bedford social calendar. Whether you are a fan of classical music or not, when the orchestra is in full swing, the children are waving their flags and the fireworks and lasers are lighting up the skies above Bedford Park it really is a magical experience. We can’t wait for this year’s 25th anniversary event and we hope to welcome guests to the park for the biggest Bedford Park Proms yet.’
