Proms 2023

This year there were so many memorable acts - too many to mention here - but a huge thank you to everyone that took part or supported the Proms financially, by attending events or by volunteering. We would like to say thank you to all our venues in Shipston and the villages, Newbold, Cherington, Stourton, Whichford, Ilmington, Long Compton and Brailes, we hope you will join in again next year.

Any feedback will be much appreciated. So far, we have requests for Viennese waltzes and a return of the RPJ Band. This year, the worthy winners of our window display competition were the Post Office!

With the great array of music during the Proms there was so much to dip into, and most days was a big decision as to what to go and see. People were very generous with their support and filled the buckets and bought raffle tickets in their thousands, so much so that we ran out at the end of the first week! David Birch is leaving after over 20 years in the post as conductor and he will be missed.

There is always great talent on show in and around Shipston and this year was no exception. See the online or hard copy Forum for highlights from this year's Proms.
