Fundraising Proms set to raise the roof in 2014

January 7, 2014 in News 2013, News 2014 by Administrator

Last Night of the PromsThe Newark Twinning Association’s 2014 Last Night of the Proms is set to take place on Saturday, 8th February.

This annual fund raiser is taking place at the Palace Theatre, Newark, with tickets on sale now, featuring the Ransome Reunion Band, and hosted by Howard Newport.

The history of the event begins in the early days of the Twinning Association’s existence it was clear that a major fund raising event would need to be arranged, ideally one which could be run on an annual basis.

As the Association had developed from the Town Council a couple of former Town Councillors, Len Wilkes and Tom Bickley, together with the then Town Clerk, Mike Wilson, approached the Ransome Band to investigate the possibility of a joint event. The end result of their discussions was the “Last Night of the Proms” with the inaugural event held in the Sconce Hills School Hall in 1984 and so was born one of the most popular concerts in Newark’s musical calendar.

The profits from the “Last Night of the Proms” are used by the association to help to fund the various visits to and from our twin towns, which year include Emmendingen and Saint-Cyr-Sur-Loire.

Tickets for the “Last Night of the Proms” will be available from the Palace Theatre Box Office, or Chair Rita Crowe.
