A FAMOUS orchestra is gearing up to play at the Broadlands estate next summer.

The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, based in London, will be headlining the Park Proms - a two-night concert happening on Friday, August 27, and Saturday, August 28 next year.

In a first for the south coast, the 78-piece orchestra will play a 'Last night of the proms' styled concert with a number of pieces from some hit films, including Harry Potter, James Bond, Star Wars, and Superman.

Park Proms organisers have also announced an air display will open the concert.

On the second night, a household pop act will wow music-lovers, but the act is yet to be named.

Event director of Park Proms, Michael Hlavaty, said: "We are thrilled to be able to finally announce that we have secured one of the world’s best orchestras who will visit the south coast.

"This will not only be a fantastic event for all who attend, but finally something for everyone to mark in their calendars and have something to look forward to after such a difficult year.

"This event will also hugely benefit the local area and we are challenging to be one of the most environmentally conscious events in the UK.”

Director at Broadlands who is responsible for events, Richard Jordan-Baker, said: "For Park Proms to announce an event with such a high-profile orchestra is very exciting.

"It will be a massive spectacle for the local residents of Romsey, Hampshire, and further afield. We are delighted to have been selected as the host venue for this event.

" I must say, with the air display and the other announcements that are coming, this event will be the must-attend event of 2021."

He added: "Broadlands has a history of hosting high profile concerts and Park Proms is a real coup for everyone involved at the estate.”

Early bird tickets are now on sale and will cost £49.50 per adult.
