(The website link that was here no longer works) It's one of Audlem's great days of the year with Proms on the Park. It's a fabulous social evening with top quality music. You can pay on the gate or tickets can still be bought from Audlem Post Office (this morning) or these locations:- Nantwich Tourist Information Office (TIC); Inglenook Fine Arts in Nantwich; Hallmark in Nantwich; Alexander Paper Supplies at Dagfields; Whitchurch TIC; Green End Pharmacy in Whitchurch; Market Drayton TIC; Computer Resources in Market Drayton; Gift Box in Crewe and Newcastle-Under-Lyme TIC.
The Band of the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment will provide the music. They also performed last year and provided superb entertainment including a dramatic demonstration of precision drumming. They will be joined by the band of the Lancashire Artillery Volunteers and the sight and sound they create is superb. If you haven't been to the Audlem Proms before, rest assured the music is of the highest possible quality.
The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment was formed in July 2006 when The King's Own Royal Border Regiment; The King's Regiment and The Queen's Lancashire Regiment, together with their respective companies of the Lancastrian and Cumbrian Volunteers and the King's and Cheshire Regiment merged.
The Regiment's band consists of thirty five musicians including a Director of Music, Captain P G Smith. For concerts like the Audlem Proms on the Park the band wears Scarlet tunic with white belt, No. 1 dress trousers (Navy blue with a red stripe) and a ceremonial helmet.
While you wine and dine at the Proms, the musical entertainment will be by the Cheshire Community School of Samba and the Cheshire Constabulary Band before the army bands take to the giant stage for the Proms concert. The weather forecast looks pretty good so it all promises to be a great evening of entertainment from 6.00pm onwards and the fireworks finale at 10.30pm.
