Blickling Hall is hosting a proms-style event in August, which combines lakeside picnicking in the stately home's park, with a full orchestra, and Spitfire flying display.

This year's event will repeat the patriotic flag-waving finale, but is also taking on a James Bond theme - giving men and women the chance to dress up as suave spies and glamourous Bond girls.

One group has already booked more than 30 tickets, having bought a 40-plus strong party last year, and it has seen them win a bottle of champagne and two extra tickets having passed the 2013 tickets-sold mark.

Organiser of the prize-winning party, Olga Bryant from Southrepps, said: 'Last year's concert was fabulous - the music, atmosphere and the Spitfire.'

'So when the concert was advertised again for this year, I started getting emails from friends in the village asking if I was going to be organising another party.'

They will be dressing up, taking flags and picnics - which other concertgoers are encouraged to do at the Last Night of the Blickling Proms event on Saturday August 10.

The movie theme of the first half, includes a symphonic medley of James Bond themes to celebrate 50 years of Bond, as well as other cinema classics.

The second half will be full of proms favourites, including Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory, before a firework finale.

It is being promoted by Revival Productions, with media support from the EDP.

Tickets are available for £32 (group discounts available). Visit www.revival-productions.co.uk or call the box office on 01263 734711. No booking fees are charged and car and coach parking on the night is free.
