A musical Bank Holiday feast is to take place in the spectacular surroundings of Weston Park, in Staffordshire.
The two-day events are being organised by Fizz Festivals – the company behind the highly successful Proms and Prosecco in the Park in Newport, Shropshire.
Popular opera duet Belle Voci – finalists in 2018 popular TV show The Voice, will headline Proms and Prosecco at Weston Park on Sunday, 26 May, and a new event – the Fireflies Festival, featuring a pop and rock music line-up, will light-up Bank Holiday Monday, on 27 May.
“There will be a distinctly different musical feel between day one and two but both events will build on the music, fizz and family fun formula which has made our Proms and Prosecco events such a success over the last two years,” said events-organiser Esther Wright of Fizz Festivals. “Fizz Festivals is dedicated to serving up outdoor events with great music, fabulous street food and, of course, plenty of fizz, craft ales and gin. We want people to bring the whole family, picnic tables and chairs, sit back and relax in a warm, friendly atmosphere.”
Chester based duo Belle Voci wowed audiences on The Voice, sealing their place in the final with a blockbuster rendition of Adele’s Bond theme, Skyfall.
Esther said: “We’re delighted to announce Belle Voci as our Proms and Prosecco headliners. Emily and Sophie are a growing force on the music scene. They’ve performed with Gary Barlow and Alfie Boe and led the singing of the national anthem at the Wembley final of the Rugby League Challenge Cup. Belle Voci are on a mission to bring opera to a wide audience and are a perfect fit for Proms and Prosecco which attracts a varied audience of both classical music lovers, people who just love to experience live performances and families who want a memorable shared day out in a relaxed atmosphere, filled with music, good food, fun and, of course fizz.”
Belle Voci will be joined by an eclectic line-up of international recording artists and talented local singers, including String Infusion, a popular acoustic and string quartet.
Fireflies Festival on Bank Holiday Monday will have a pop and rock vibe but will also have the warm, family celebration feel.
A range of tickets are on sale for both events. Fizz Festivals have announced a tiered booking system with discounted deals for people who book early and a chance to book for one or both events. Camping passes and gazebo hire are also available.
