Lee Mead joins the line-up for BBC Wales' Proms In The Park 2018
West End star and Holby City actor Lee Mead is joining this year’s line-up for BBC Wales’ Proms in the Park in Colwyn Bay on Saturday 8 September.
Already on the bill are mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins, 16 year old pianist and winner of BBC Young Musician 2018 Lauren Zhang and Only Kids Allowed - who will all perform with the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales.
Lee says: “I am thrilled to be invited to perform at Proms in the Park in Wales this year. It is always such a special event and I am really excited to see everyone in Colwyn Bay.”
Cllr Louise Emery, Conwy County Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development, says: “It’s great that BBC Wales has secured high profile artists for Proms in the Park in Colwyn Bay, and are again highlighting we have the right environment for great events. Events are extremely important to Conwy County as they provide significant economic benefit for many of our businesses. I encourage those who haven’t as yet bought your ticket to do so as you won’t be disappointed.”
Visitors are invited to bring picnics, deck chairs and flags to celebrate the Last Night of the Proms. The evening will end with fireworks and the Last Night medley of sing-a-long numbers, joining with the audience at the Royal Albert Hall and with parks across the UK.
Tickets for the event are on sale and available from Venue Cymru, Llandudno.
