We know the game and we're gonna play it

OK - we may all be a bit (ahem) long in the tooth to move like the charming wet young man above, but we are heading off - in what is forecast to be horrid stormy weather - to sit in Hyde Park for seven hours today for our traditional Summer Season-closer, Proms in the Park!

It will be worth it, however. As well as the traditional all-singing, all-cheering, flag-waving finale (Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia, Jerusalem et al), on the bill are Michael Ball, The Feeling, Tim Minchin, Alfie Boe, All Saints, ABC, Sir James Galway, tenor Juan Diego Flórez, the BBC Concert Orchestra, and headliners Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons(!)...

...and the legendary Rick Astley!

He's "never gonna give up", so why should we?

Wish us luck...


  1. The Beeb's website advises, "In the interest of safety, please do not bring glass items (including bottles), barbeques or FLAMING TORCHES to the event."

    I hope you won't be turned away, as a result.

    1. We were FLAMING, but we definitely were not turned away... Jx

  2. O dear god, Little Miss Rick Astley. I remember after hearing him on the radio (pretty much non-stop) seeing his video and being amazed, along with my friends, that he was a white boy. With a voice like Barry White.

    1. Remarkably, his latest album was Number 1 in our charts recently, despite the fact his last hit was in 1991... Jx
