Clevedon Promenade Extravaganza - This Saturday 7pm
Clevedon Community Association are hoping the absence of flowers in Sunhill Park won't put supporters off joining them for a reception drink on the terrace at Princes Hall this Saturday. The flower beds which looked absolutely stunning for last years Prom have recently been hit by Oxtalis, which means no summer planting has taken place. The Promenade Extravaganza is all set to be a fabulous evening with the Cameo Orchestra, Jane Gilchrist and Rachel Cooper providing live entertainment. Tickets are available on the door and all are welcome to come and support this fundraising event. Full details can be found on the new website for the centre at http://tinyurl.com/3hepfvl

    Promenade Concert at The Princes Theatre, Clevedon – Saturday 18th June 2011

    A large audience was treated to a wonderful promenade concert last night at The Princes Theatre in Clevedon.

    Andrew Marchant compered a varied musical evening with performances by The Cameo Orchestra with soloists Jane Gilchrist and Rachael Cooper – accompanied by Sue Marsh on the piano. The conductor was Andrew Foister (resplendent in Union Flag waistcoat after the interval) and the leader was Adrian Juggins.

    The evening got underway with a grand processional march by Guilmant and ended with the flag waving favourites: Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and, of course, Land of Hope and Glory by Elgar. The Fantasia on British Sea Songs by Wood had the audience clapping and stamping their feet as the piece raced to a crescendo at a frenetic speed!

    One of the highlights of the evening was a very funny performance of Franz Lehar's "On My Lips Every Kiss Is Like Wine", sung by Jane Gilchrist with two very plucky volunteers whom she selected from the audience. After the song, the two gentlemen were thanked by Jane Gilchrist and given a rapturous reception by the audience.

    The lighting and sound crew did a brilliant job as did all the others who helped throughout the evening with selling raffle tickets, etc.

    All in all, a fabulous evening of music which included medleys from Oklahoma, Wicked, Les Miserables and a salute to Cole Porter – something for everyone.

    The concert was held to raise money for the refurbishment of the Clevedon Community Centre.
