Proms on the Wicket 2024

14th Sep

The Proms series has been staged since 1895 and has grown from being a celebration of purely classical music to eight weeks of music across a range of genres. From Berlioz to Bollywood via jazz, musical theatre and children’s concerts, it all culminates in the Last Night and the traditional favourites of Elgar and Parry.

Guernsey has held its own Proms event since 2005 and this year’s Proms on the Wicket will take place at the KGV Playing Fields on Saturday 14 September.

The event aims to showcase the wealth of talented local musicians and welcomes back Guernsey Symphonic Winds to make their fifth appearance in the live concert. The band includes a large
number of musicians who were taught by the Guernsey Music Service and was established nearly 20 years ago. Their programme will include a selection of uplifting and joyful music from the classical, military band, jazz, pop and musical theatre repertoire and there will be something that appeals to

The founding principle of the Proms series was to promote the best in classical music to the widest audience by keeping ticket prices low or free to attend. That principle has always been a key
component of Proms on the Wicket, which remains free to attend thanks to the support of the local business community. The year the event welcomes a new principal sponsor, HIGHVERN, alongside
long term supporter Guernsey Arts.
