Sidmouth Town Band will be taking to the Connaught Gardens stage for their 9th annual Last Night of the Proms concerton Saturday, August 16.

Growing steadily in popularity since being started back in 2006, the event attracts hundreds of concert-goers and gives a chance to enjoy the proms spirit locally in beautiful surroundings.

The band invites everyone to come along and enjoy the last night of the proms spirit and bring flags, picnics, wine, candelabras and anything to make it an occasion.
