19th October at Brooklands info

A bit of info for those performing and/or helping at the First Ever Pop Up Proms concert on 19th October.

The venue is Brooklands residential home, Costessey Lane, Drayton, near Norwich. Here's a link to their website:

The timings are not confirmed yet but it will be early evening due to the age and fragility of our audience- I would estimate starting the show at about 6.30pm. 


I am visiting Brooklands on 27th September to finalise the details, so I will issue a full update after that!


As per yesterday's FB post, I'm asking everyone to prepare two songs to sing. As we go through the year, and depending on how many performers are able to do each show, I may have to ask you to do more or less than two as the occasion demands, but two will do for starters.


I assume everyone knows the tunes of 'Jerusalem', 'Rule Britannia' and 'Land of Hope and Glory'. 


Just in case, here are some links to You Tube showing them from this year's Last Night of the Proms:


Rule Britannia http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZofobwEepg

Land of Hope and Glory  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQVEWW-MA50 (starts at 2.02mins)

Jerusalem http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g74Kr8xgZiE (starts after Marin's speech, at 8.00mins)

Heather or I will be doing the verse of Rule Britannia, depending on which of us is present. We will not be doing Auld Lang Syne or the National Anthem, even though they are included on the You Tube clip.
