What was Proms in the Park, is this year once again focused on a wide-ranging music event featuring a mix of musical talent, organised by Diss and District Rotary Club. It will be held on Diss Park by the Mere, from 5.30pm tomorrow.

This year Park Alive is featuring another cornucopia of musical talent to attract a wide audience.

Two sound stages feature this year - the usual bandstand arrangement and a second one on a lorry trailer courtesy of Bartrums for the smaller groups and Park Radio.

This year the local radio station will once again feature, kicking off the entertainment, and keeping the crowds updated. South Norfolk’s very own after-school ‘Glee Club’ is the first act.

Sure to get the crowd on a high, SingStart features schoolchildren from 11 to 13 years of age performing contemporary songs with some dance moves thrown in.

That is followed by Heather Merryn performing covers of hit songs plus some originals of her own.

Discord are next, the act following on from the group singing sessions run in Diss by Michael Dann.

They will sing from a wide selection of songs from musicals through to modern contemporary, with classical and good old-time sing-along pieces.

The Saturday night entertainment wouldn’t be complete without the South Norfolk Youth Symphonic Band.

This year’s crop will be performing in two sessions – firstly with contemporary popular tunes and then the ever-popular and rousing renditions of the classic melodies associated with Last Night of the Proms.
