Last Night of the Proms Screening

7 September 2013 7:30pm - 10:40pm

Last Night of the Proms on the Big Screen

 

​The Last Night of the Proms taking place in the Royal Albert Hall in London will be shown on the Big Screen on Millennium Square.

The evening begins with a celebratory new work by Anna Clyne and includes a rare performance of Britten’s 1967 overture for chorus and orchestra The Building of the House, a touch of Broadway magic and the sound of a glass ceiling being broken as Marin Alsop takes charge of her first Last Night.
Nigel Kennedy and Joyce DiDonato are the star soloists in a programme that picks up sea-faring themes from Bantock and George Lloyd and includes a translatlantic flavour.

Please note: No furniture or facilities will be provided for this screening but you are welcome to bring your own. Alcohol is only permitted when purchased from near by bars/restaurants and consumed in their own outdoor seating areas. Please expect general noise from these venues and their customers using these seating areas in front of the Big Screen.
