Following the success of last year’s RAF 100 Proms, Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome is delighted to announce the triumphant return of the Stow Proms on Saturday 13th July.
Popular favourites, The Great Dunmow Town Band, will perform from our working hangar while the audience reclines on the lush green grass of the historic airfield. The band was formed in March 2013 by Veteran Military musician Andy King and over that time it has raised more than £40,000 for 21 charities. The group is a traditional concert band with woodwind, brass and percussion that plays a wide range of music from film and big band to pop and jazz. Vocalists Carol-Anne, Blaize and Ann will complete the line-up and our compere for the afternoon will be ever-popular BBC Radio Essex presenter, Dave Monk.
Tickets for the event are £25 per adult and £12 for children under 16. They include a glass of Pimms on arrival and a delicious afternoon tea with strawberries and cream. Arrival is from 4.30pm, ready for the concert at 5pm. The evening should finish by 8pm.
A hot, cold and alcohol bar will be available. We welcome you to make a celebration of this event – Black Tie optional, but you will need to bring your own chairs, small tables, blankets and candelabras! Please leave the gazebos at home.
