Notices from Thursday 8 Aug 2019

Thorney Lakes Proms

Latest – 1pm – Friday 9th August. Sadly, this event has been cancelled due to the high winds and heavy rain forecast.

This coming Saturday, 10th August, is the annual Music by the Lakes (Proms evening) at Thorney Lakes Caravan and Camping Park, Thorney, Langport, TA10 0DW. Please arrive at the marquee at 5.45pm for a 6.30pm start. Remember to allow plenty of time for parking and walking to the band marquee. Tickets (the proceeds of which, this year, go to Bridgwater Cancer Research UK) are normally priced at £10 – band members are free, but not their family – but can usually be purchased in advance at a reduced price from Thorney Lakes Reception. It would be advisable to bring a light for your stand, if you have one, and a torch for later in the evening. Feel free to bring a raincoat, just in case. Oh, and don’t forget your pegs – essential for the forecast windy weather.

For those band members who’ve not played at the Thorney Lakes Proms before, we normally open the evening with a 30-45 minute session. This is then followed by a long break, during which there are other musical performances, before we play the final session of the evening. You may wish to bring a picnic for the interval. It’s quite an occasion and most of the people in the audience bring along a picnic (and some even bring gazebos, bunting, tables, candelabras, lanterns, BBQs, wine, beer, blankets…). 

Feedback

“The band playing was exceptional this year, and many have commented on the really good mix of carols and popular music.

Once again, huge thanks for playing for us again.”

“Just a note to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all of you in the Band for the great event on Sunday. We thought that the Band was on absolutely ‘top form’ and excelled in all aspects of the music.”

“I just wanted to officially thank you all for the wonderful performance you put on for our Street Fair. It isn’t official yet but I believe this was our best year ever for fund raising. Thank you for being a part of that. I say it every year and every year I mean it, when I say Drayton Street Fair wouldn’t be the same without you. It’s the music that lends the day its particular vibrance, I believe.I hope you all enjoyed yourself and that we’ll see you again next year.”
