Fireworks to provide spectacular climax to Proms in the Paddock in Lewes

Proms In The Paddock, the unique and hugely popular event organised by Commercial Square Bonfire Society at the Lewes beauty spot, will be staged on Saturday, August 3.

The event will feature a raft of popular tunes from the Lewes Glynde and Beddingham Brass Band on a purpose built stage at The Paddock playing fields.

The grand finale to the evening will be a spectacular firework display by Commercial Square to Tchaikovsky’s famous 1812 Overture.

There’s plenty to do as before the music starts and during the intervals. Commercial Square runs an excellent bar where you can stock up with Harveys, Pimms and a range of wines and spirits.
