Sunday Proms 2022
Fort Amherst, in conjunction with Medway Council is presenting a Summer Proms Season of FREE concerts in the amazing setting of the Spur Battery Amphitheatre on the heights above Chatham. Starting on Sunday 17 July the concerts will take place on Sunday afternoons through the summer months until Sunday 4 September.
The Proms Concerts will start at 2pm and run for about two hours with a short break. An eclectic season of music is set to invoke memories of the park concerts of old. The season opens with the well-known local group Pretending People Theatre playing a mix of feel good singalong songs from the 50s right up to present day as well as some well-known folk and pub tunes.
The season will continue with proms by the BAE Systems Brass Band, Anglo-Polish singer Katy Carr with her group The Aviators, the Kent Youth Jazz Orchestra, the 1940’s singing duo The Swingtime Sweethearts, and the Bettesteiner Footstompers Oompah Band.
The season will be brought to an end on September 4 by local star Jamie Johnson and his band. The Fort Amherst Sunday Proms will be just the place to sit down with a picnic and a cold drink or two.
