The Last Night of the Proms 2013
There was plenty of pomp and circumstance in St.Mary’s Church, Twyford, on September 7 as villagers enjoyed The Last Night of the Proms on a big screen in the church.
This traditionally British night of celebration was being relayed live from The Royal Albert Hall, with the Twyford audience also being entertained live by local performers during the first half of the evening.
Stage Fright, a drama based charity that runs imaginative workshops for young people, started off the evening with a performance. Following this The Scoops, whose band members are all originally from Twyford, played a mixture of music from the 60s through to the present day. Then mezzo-sopranos Felicity and Liberty Buckland, also from Twyford, sang two themed pieces to end the first part of the evening.
In the second half of the evening, St.Mary’s was filled with the music from The Royal Albert Hall, and the Twyford audience joined in the last night favourites such as
Rule Britannia, Pomp and Circumstance and Elgar's Jerusalem among many others.
