APPEARING AT LYTHAM PROMS …
Lytham Proms is a new (currently one-night) event to be held at Lytham Hall, separately from the five-night Lytham Festival, but hosted by the same good folks. Russell is to be their first headline artist on Saturday 29th August.
From Lytham Hall’s web page, “A brand new Lytham Proms concert is being launched for 2020 with ALL money raised being gifted to historic Lytham Hall. Lytham Festival organisers Cuffe and Taylor have decided to move their traditional Proms finale from Lytham Green to the picturesque parkland of Lytham Hall. The move marks the start of a new era for Lytham Proms and promises to bring all the pomp and circumstance of a traditional picnic proms event.“
