Picnickers keep the carnival atmosphere going at Proms and Pop in the Park
A WEEKEND of carnival fun culminated on Sunday afternoon with Farnham’s very own Proms and Pop in the Park event in Gostrey Meadow.
The show, which was free to attend and featured music from midday until the early evening, brought families and people of all ages together to continue the excitement of the carnival.
“Gostrey Meadow was a patchwork of picnic blankets and had a relaxed atmosphere which, after a full-on day of carnival on Saturday, lots of us welcomed,” said the mayor of Farnham, Councillor Alan Earwaker.
Proms and Pop in the Park featured sets from five bands who each brought a different flavour to the afternoon.
There was also entertainment from Juggling Jake, whose circus skills and tricks delighted the audience.
The mayor continued: “I’d like to thank our sponsors Kidd Rapinet Solicitors for supporting our summer 2022 programme, and all our performers for the amazing show.
“A high point for me was the Woking Wind Orchestra’s rendition of Land of Hope and Glory which set off an impromptu swaying and waving of arms across the meadow – such a memorable sight!”
Sunday’s extravaganza was just one of several community events taking place in Gostrey Meadow over the summer. Find details of other events online at farnham.gov.uk
