Proms On The Pitch 2021

Top talent teams up on Saturday 17 July 2021 for Uckfield Proms on the Pitch

The open-air event at Uckfield Rugby Club features Uckfield Concert Brass with special guest performances, local singers, and theatre groups. Gates open at 4pm, with music starting at 5.45pm.
The event closes with traditional prom night favourites led by internationally-renowned soprano, Jo Appleby, and accompanied by spectacular fireworks from Uckfield Bonfire and Carnival Society.

Bigger and better
Proms on the Pitch has become a popular climax to the annual Uckfield festival. Now in its third year, the event is set to be bigger and better than ever. The town’s Uckfield Concert Brass promises an upbeat selection of entertaining music. The band’s programme includes favourites such as Superman, Bohemian Rhapsody, Summertime and Over the Rainbow, along with Prom night favourites Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and Pomp and Circumstance.

The audience can also expect a compelling performance from Jo Appleby, who has toured with Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Cliff Richard and the multi-platinum classical crossover group Amici Forever. Brighton-based The Flat Pack, which appeared on ITV’s The Voice, will bring a touch of Sinatra magic with its three-part vocal harmony.

And look out for: Cantando Ensemble, a unique Sussex cappella group; local singer and performer Tom Wasels; Uckfield Theatre Guild, which has been performing musicals since 1995; Uckfield Rugby Stagers; and Uckfield Holy Cross Choir. A fantastic selection of food and drinks will be available to buy, including Harveys beers, wood-fired pizza, barista coffees and local ice creams. Bring your own chairs and rugs. Ample free parking available.

Covid-safe
Following the government’s recent Covid announcement, Proms on the Pitch is able to go ahead as scheduled under the step 3 rules. The event is outside, very spacious and will follow all government guidelines for the public and performers.

Uckfield Concert Brass said: “All the groups involved are thrilled to be able to perform and it is sure to be a really special afternoon of excellent music. The best way to support the event is to book tickets early.”
