Bedford Park Proms – Part 2
Gates open at 4.30pm
Bedford Park Proms 25th Anniversary – Part Two takes place on Sunday 31st July 2022 and is Bedfordshire’s most prestigious al fresco Proms event. We are proud to welcome back opera star and BBC Radio presenter Wynne Evans to join us as our headliner along with Broadway and West End sensation Marisha Wallace.
Wynne Evans is regularly singing to millions for the TV advertising campaign that has made him a household name as the spoof opera star Gio Compario. Although a spoof opera star in the Go Compare insurance adverts, Wynne is a professionally trained opera singer with over 25 years’ experience, and has a debut album ‘A Song in My Heart’ that went to the Number 1 in the classical charts.
He is a regular presenter on BBC Radio Wales and has also presented on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM and most recently performed for the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall at their Welsh home.
Singer and actor Marisha Wallace is a Broadway and West End sensation, best known for starring in Something Rotten, Dreamgirls, Waitress and more recently in the role of Motormouth Maybelle in Hairspray!
She’s topped the music charts with her cover of Annie’s Tomorrow, released at the peak of the pandemic to raise funds for performers out of work and been playlisted on Radio 2 with her singles and subsequent album Tomorrow. Marisha has performed on Strictly Come Dancing, released her EP and sang for the Queen at the Royal Variety Show.
The soloists will be accompanied by the London Gala Orchestra conducted by the enigmatic Stephen Bell, Once again The Bedford Choral Society will also be part of the show.
Bedford Park Proms has one of the best laser shows in the country and a firework spectacular to finish the evening.
This year we will be celebrating our incredible NHS by offering all NHS workers a proms ticket for just £1. Please see our terms and conditions below.
Joe is a 26-year-old pop singer-songwriter from Bedfordshire. Having made his name at University on the Leicester acoustic and open mic scene, Joe returned to his home town of Bedford to record his first single ‘Childhood Sweetheart’. In January 2018, he released his debut EP ‘Chapter One’. He is a guitar driven pop artist who takes his inspiration from acts such as Ed Sheeran, Coldplay and The Script.
Before pandemic restrictions made touring impossible, Joe continued to play bigger and bigger venues. He’s become a regular on the local festival scene playing to around 7000 people at the Bedford Park Proms and headlining the Golden Hare stage at the popular AmpRocks. In the summer of 2019 Joe opened for pop legend Ronan Keating and finished the year off in style playing at BBC Introducing Live in London’s Docklands.
Joe kicked off 2021 with a bang with the release of his new single ‘Let Me Go’. The new single is infused with a rich and emotional sound, with heartfelt lyrics entwined with Joe’s signature guitar-driven style. The success of the new single landed Joe a support slot for Jools Holland at Stonor Park in August 2021, quickly followed by a return to Bedford Park Proms 2021.
Joe was straight out the gate in 2022, kicking off the year with a sell out full-band headline show at the esteemed Craufurd Arms, Milton Keynes. Joe is set to release his brand new single ‘Someone Else’ in Summer’22, which has already bagged him air-time on BBC Introducing Radio. This eagerly awaited release has caught the attention of many, earning Joe festival slots at Bedford Park Proms, Castle Howard Proms & the much anticipated Abba Symphonic Concert in 2022.
Big things are in store for Joe this year, and he’s just getting started…
