The competition has now closed, the winner’s details are below.

Shropshire Live teamed up with the organisers of Proms and Prosecco in the park, to give away a family pass, for up to five people, to this year’s event.

Shropshire’s Proms and Prosecco in the Park event is set to return this September with even more sparkle and plenty more fizz.

The line-up for the British-style prom event on September 8, at Chetwynd Deer Park in Newport, will see artists performing popular classical pieces mixed with favourites from the musicals, as well as a few contemporary surprises and a Last Night of the Proms style finale.

Headlining this year is British soprano Mary-Jess, best known for winning the Chinese version of the ‘X-Factor’ and recording the theme song for Downton Abbey.

She will be joined by tenor Jack Foley who captivated last year’s prom-goers, The Lymm Concert Band and, adding a real edge to this year’s line-up, is String Infusion, a fabulous all-female string quartet known for their acoustic and electric string performances in a pop/rock/classical crossover style.

A range of talented local performers will also take to the stage including the renowned Newport Male Voice Choir and A Choired Taste from Market Drayton. Young, up and coming Staffordshire-based singer 14-year-old Olivia Shipley will also be making a special appearance.

Food and Drink

Added to this musical feast, there will be a vast array of food stalls and bars including a dedicated Prosecco bar, craft ale bar, artisan gin bar, handcrafted ice creams, pizza, a wide variety of street food and lots more. There will be plenty of activities to keep the children entertained including bushcraft skills, jugglers and street entertainers, as well as plenty of space for them to stretch their legs and of course the fantastic music.

Prom-goers are encouraged to bring their own tables, chairs, blankets, picnic hampers candelabras and of course union jack flags to add to the British proms atmosphere.

Organiser Esther Wright, Director of Fizz Festivals Ltd, said: “We are very excited about this year’s event. We’ve added lots more sparkle and fizz and it’s going to be a great celebration of British music, great food and drink. What more could people want to round off the summer!”
