Last Night of the Proms

The Leighton-Linslade celebration of Last Night of the Proms takes place in Parson’s Close Recreation Ground on Saturday 9th September from 7pm.

Our evening begins with renditions of popular and classical songs from Richard Stark who has performed at the European Chamber Opera, on Rhine and Danube River Cruises and at Birmingham Symphony Hall before Milton Keynes Brass take to the bandstand for their rendition of traditional British songs and sea-shanties before a live-screening of the Last Night of the Proms from the Royal Albert Hall in London. The evening concludes with a firework display to music, featuring favourites from the evening’s entertainment.

Throughout the evening, food and drink is available from Parson’s Close Café and visitors are also encouraged to bring a picnic with friends and family.

Family Films in the Park

On the afternoon of the Last Night of the Proms, our popular Family Films in the Park event takes place, with films shown at 12pm and 2pm suitable for the whole family. Our film selections have yet to be decided but will be announced via our social media channels at the beginning of August.

Throughout the Family Films in the Park event, Parson’s Close Café, our award-winning playground and the Splash and Play will be open.

Accessible toilet facilities including a changing places toilet are available within the park next to the Splash and Play.
