A fine early September Saturday evening saw the Bardi Wind Orchestra make their first concert appearance since December 2019 when they were invited by Hinckley and Bosworth District Council to perform in Hinckley’s Hollycroft Park in a ‘Proms in the Park’ concert. An estimated audience of over 1,000 enjoyed a programme which included a host of popular melodies from stage and screen including Harry Potter, James Bond themes, the Big Country, Frozen and Aladdin. The second half concluded with well known favourites from the Last Night of the Proms which went down well with the flag-waving audience who joined in enthusiastically. BWO were joined for the concert by long-time friends of the Orchestra, singers Jenny Saunders and David Morris and the concert was compered by Colin Blackler, well-known to Hinckley audiences for his appearances at the Concordia Theatre, and a former Chairman of Bardi.
