Concert in the Park - Southend Priory Park

Southend Concert in the Park 2014

Date :28th  June 2014

Louis Clark will be conducting a Hooked on Classics programme, playing many of the hits from this legendary album series with a Proms finish and firework finale!

Tickets will be on sale in the Spring.

On June 28th 2014 The  Concert in the Park is returning to Priory Park after a two-year break.

Launched in 1996, the concert ran for 15 consecutive years before a congested summer schedule in 2012 and financial concerns forced a two-year break.
Concert chairman, Roger Allan, said: “We all feel more assured about the financial situation now and are delighted to be putting it on again."
The concert will feature the English Pops Orchestra playing a mix of hits from the legendary Hooked on Classics album series plus some additional music from films, the Beatles and a very special ELO hit arranged specially for tonight’s show! PLUS of course the Last Night of the Proms finale.

Regularly attracting crowds of up to 5,000, the concert is fun for the whole family and raises vital money for charities, including Southend Hospital
