Wymondham set for Last Night of the Proms event

Wymondham's finest musicians will join forces to provide a spectacular evening of rousing patriotic music this weekend.

Wymondham Abbey will be hosting its own Last Night of the Proms on Saturday from 7pm.

The town's acclaimed Symphony Orchestra, under conductor Andrew Parnell, will combine with Wymondham Choral Society, directed by Claire Dixon, to creat a night to rival the Royal Albert Hall.

The programme will include well-loved classics such as Strauss's Radetsky March, Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody and Handel's Nightingale Chorus, while favourites such as Elgar's Land of Hope and Glory, Arne's Rule Britannia and Parry's Jerusalem will also feature.

Soprano Rebecca Mundy and organist Tom Primrose will also be contributing to the evening.
