The annual two-week music celebration, the Shipston Proms, which was due to go ahead in June, has been cancelled, the organising committee has announced.
Although the government is optimistic that live events can take place this summer, circumstances continue to be unpredictable and the risk of potential cancellation is too high to plan a fortnight of live music. Our finances are not infinite and we really want to make sure that future proms events can go ahead, so that was also a major factor in making the decision.
The committee are very keen to have some form of live music in 2021 as we have all missed the buzz of hearing artists perform, so we are looking to put on a weekend of music later this summer. The Proms will come back strongly in 2022.
The Shipston Proms is organised by a committee who aim to bring the community a varied and exciting programme of music over the fortnight. The committee meet once a month, usually on the third Wednesday at 7.30pm at the White Bear. The Proms also have a group of volunteers that assist during the Proms fortnight – helping with manning events, shaking buckets, selling raffle tickets and, on the Final Night, setting up the Square and ensuring it is returned the same way (or better!) than the Proms found it.
The Proms wouldn’t happen without the committee and the volunteers.
