Tiny flags and fresh strawberries at the ready – Dreamland is hosting its first ever proms in the park this June.

In a first for the vintage amusement park, Dreamland will present its very own Proms starring The BBC Big Band and Claire Martin OBE on Saturday 15th June.

Guests of all ages can enjoy the very best big band, jazz and swing music on the Scenic Stage – and enjoy Dreamland’s thrill rides – and chill with their own picnic from just £15 a ticket or opt for Golden Circle seated tickets or VIP packages.

The internationally renowned BBC Big Band will be led by conductor Barry Forgie and will be joined by featured vocalist Claire Martin OBE. The show offers a great family night out, mixing the nostalgia of the jazz age and big band era with modern classics and pop culture.

BBC Big Band

Widely regarded as the world’s leading and most versatile orchestra, The BBC Big Band consistently delights audiences old and new through their radio broadcasts and live performances. Stalwarts of the Royal Albert Hall, the Proms In The Park at Hyde Park and numerous festivals, the BBC Big Band is probably best known for its show Big Band Special on BBC Radio 2, as well its appearances on BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Line Up.

This June, they will be joined by BBC Radio 3 presenter and award-winning jazz singer Claire Martin OBE, often cited as ‘one of the finest jazz singers in the world today’.

With multiple food and drink options available on the park, guests will be able to nibble, sip and sway to the tantalizing tunes all evening.
