The evening event at Hockley Heath Recreation Ground, Old Warwick Road
will feature The West Midlands Police Brass Band and The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (Warwickshire), pictured above.

Proceeds will go to the Care of Police Survivors and Army Benevolent Fund and towards  
a cleared woodland area with zip wires, story trees and picnic tables at the rec.

Organiser Gary Campbell said it builds on the success of a November bonfire and fireworks event, which attracted more than 700 people.

He said: “The bonfire proved that events like this are popular in Hockley Heath and we believe we can attract 750 or more to the Proms.

“As well as the music we will have singing, picnics, drinks, and to finish it all off, a fireworks display set to music.

“There is a great deal of interest in the activity to create better facilities at the recreation ground, and we hope all villagers will come and help contribute towards making it happen as well as raising funds for such worthwhile Army and Police Service charities.”

Tickets will go on sale early next month. To register an interest email hockleyheathproms@hotmail.co.uk.
