Concert Information

Iron Acton Proms in the Meadow 2018

Concert Arrangements
For those of you who haven't done this before, it's an open air concert with the audience picnicing in the meadow. The stage is a 'clam shell' shape, so open at the front but covered and closed on 3 sides. The gates open for the audience at 5pm and there is entertainment starting from 6pm before we start at 7.15pm. The evening finishes with fireworks; they're set off from behind the stage, so be prepared!!

Programme: Please see section below this article.
