Music in the Meadows ready for a nautical night

Music lovers are being asked to get in the mood and dress in nautical clothes as Iron Acton prepares for Music in the Meadows.

The Prom is being held on Saturday 14 July, part of a weekend of music organised by Acton Aid which is raising funds for local good causes.  

Organisers are promising prizes for the best outfits on the night, where people traditionally bring a picnic as they listen to music from the Bristol Millennium Orchestra with classically trained soprano and bass baritone soloists. 

The Iron Acton Community Choir,  Kathryn Hurley Dance Academy and the Harry Browns Sea Shanty Men will also be providing entertainment.

The evening will finish with the ‘last night of the Proms’ music and a spectacular firework display.

The Friday night sees the fifth Mash in the Meadow, with three bands line up to provide the entertainment. 

The First Raitt Band will be reprising Bonnie Raitt songs and Slowjin will specialise in blues and rock.

Headlining the Mash this year will be Sheelanagig, who have become something of a West Country institution
