It’s one of the highlight’s of Norfolk’s summer calendar and now we have 10 tickets to give away to the popular Last Night of the Blicking Proms.
The August 9 event will mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War with nostalgic songs and a special appearance by Augustus, a Norfolk horse who played Joey in the blockbuster film War Horse.
Members of the audience will be given song sheets for the proms evening, set in the grounds of the National Trust’s stately home, near Aylsham. The first half will feature sing-along favourites from the 1914-1918 period, including It’s A Long Way To Tipperary, Keep The Home Fires Burning, and Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit Bag.
The final half will contain a poignant remembrance, concluding with proms classics Jerusalem, Land Of Hope And Glory, and Rule Britannia.
A Spitfire will also roar over the estate, adding a touch of Second World War nostalgia to the occasion.
