In line with Government Guidance, Proms & Picnic in the Park 2020 took place across our social media channels.

With flags held high we sat in our gardens, or socially distanced in the park and tuned into Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to enjoy the music whilst the sun shone down..

If you’d like to revisit that wonderful evening why not listen to the Proms again.

Thank you to Heath Band and a BIG Thank You to all of the bands that have contributed to the virtual concert series this year.

Rule Britannia

When Britain first, at Heaven’s command
Arose from out the azure main;
This was the charter The charter of the land,
And guardian angels sang this strain: Rule, Britannia! Britannia rule the waves:
“Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.”

Jerusalem

And did those feet in ancient time, Walk upon England’s mountains green?
And was the holy lamb of God
On England’s pleasant pastures seen?
And did the countenance divine,
Shine forth upon our clouded hills? And was Jerusalem builded here Among these darksatanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold! Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear, oh clouds unfold! Bring me mychariot of fire!
I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand  Til we have built Jerusalem
In England’s green and pleasant land.

Land of Hope and Glory

Land of hope and glory, mother of the free
How shall we extol thee, who are born of thee?
Wider still and wider shall thy bounds be set
God, who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet
God, who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet

National Anthem

God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,
God save the Queen!

Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet for days of auld lang syne.
