Last Night of the Proms 2016

Chester Wind Band will be returning to Ellesmere Port Civic Hall for our eighteenth annual Last Night of the Proms. To thank Blacon High School for the wonderful support they have given the band since 1989 and especially during the move to the new school, the band has decided to raise money for the school and also for Edsential’s charity, The Chairman’s Trust, from the profits of this November’s concert.

This year the first part of the concert will have an American theme before going on to perform the traditional LNOP pieces such as British Sea Songs, Pomp and Circumstance and Jerusalem. In addition, the Edsential Music Service will be producing a choir of local primary children to perform three Disney songs midway through the first half.

Please find attached the poster for the concert
