Evelyn Community Primary School hosts the second annual Young Instrumentalist of Prescot this evening.
Our judges were overwhelmed by the musical talent on show at this year’s inaugural event, and we can’t wait to see what Prescot’s young musicians have for us tonight.
The event starts at 6.30pm, and entry is free, but as usual we suggest you arrive early to ensure a good seat.
It’s not too late to get advance tickets for other events coming up this week. We still have a handful of tickets left for Thursday’s Barn Dance and Dinner, or if you fancy a pint with your music, there’s an Acoustic Night and Open Mic at The Old Mill pub from 8.00pm till late (free).
On Friday, Gethyn Jones (pictured), of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, will play Elgar’s Cello Concerto with the Wirral Symphony Orchestra – a full, first-rate classical orchestra in St Mary’s Church for the first time. Music by Britten and Dvorak round of the evening’s programme, and you can still buy tickets in advance or pay on the door.
On Saturday, catch Prescot on Film (free) at the Prescot Methodist Centre in the morning, and enjoy Brass & Buffet in the evening. That’s food and a full concert for a mere £6. In honour of Armed Forces Day, Wirral Brass will include a few military classics in their programme.
On Sunday, we bring this ninth annual festival to a close with Choral Evensong (free) followed by the Festival Finale, featuring Haydock Male Voice Choir (£4). Bring your flags, or buy a Union Jack on the night, and join in the traditional Proms-style concert with such well-loved tunes as Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory.
