THE PARKGATE PROMS - JULY 2016
The Parkgate Proms on Friday 1st July 2016 was a great success with Neston Cricket Club hosting 405 guests made from an equal spread of members and local residents. It was sponsored by Lees Solicitors with Mason Media supporting. The Northern Lights Charity + The Shrimp Appeal were the two Charities that The Raffle raised funds for. MC Tony Bush welcomed the guests and then L’Orchestra dell'Arte performed their first set, Tchaikovsky, Puccini and a selection from My Fair Lady amongst others Cheeky Chilli served a Chicken Tarragon with lovely vegetables, followed by a sticky toffee pudding! In between the three Raffle girls, Millie, Trixie and Hannah did a great job selling all their tickets to the guests! The second set had soprano Rebecca Godley performing and showed why she has received a scholarship from the Wagner Institute of Scotland. A moment was dedicated to commemorating the 1st day of The Battle of The Somme, with The Soldier, by Rupert Brooke, read by Tony Bush. The concert ended on a high with Pomp and Circumstance being sung, while flags were waved vigorously around the Marquee. A big thanks to Lucy Mason, of Mason Media who coordinated the ticket sales and seating. Thanks to all our Bar staff, Wine Bar staff and waitresses who make this event so good. The sound + lighting by Mills Media and Andrew Mills and his staff was exceptional which was one of the reasons the third Parkgate Proms was the best and has become such a success. Watch out 2017!
