Bedford Park Concerts announces Proms and dates for 2019 event

BPC Proms 2019

The hugely popular Bedford Park Concerts will be back for 2019 with a slight shift in the usual dates for their three-day concert series in Bedford Park.

For 2019 the dates for each of the concerts will be 26, 27 and 28 July.

While the team behind the event, which has become a key part of Bedford’s annual event calendar, are still to announce their Friday and Saturday night acts, they have announced their family friendly Proms event will be on the Sunday (28 July).

In 2018 the team brought Billy Ocean, Jess Glynne and Basement Jaxx to town.

Mark Harrison, Promoter of Bedford Park Concerts, said: “The Proms concert is a truly special event, one of my personal favourites and a huge highlight in the Bedford social calendar. It’s something that every true Bedfordian should experience…

“Whether you are a fan of classical music it’s the unique all-inclusive atmosphere, the gathering of friends and family and the spine tinging magical moments from when the laser show starts and the magnificent trees around Bedford Park are lit up to the firework spectacular along with the live orchestra and vocalists – there is nothing quite like it!”

Bedford Park Concerts tell us they’ll be announcing some exciting soloists very soon but have said they will have over 120 performers on stage along with a 70-piece choir and the London Gala Orchestra, conducted by Stephen Bell.

The musical celebration will culminate with rousing favourites for flag-waving and singing along, including Rule Britannia and Land of Hope & Glory, as thousands of lasers and fireworks light up the sky.

Tickets for Bedford Park Proms are currently available at a special Christmas Early Bird price from their website.
