Bedford Park Proms, which is sponsored by Eagle Brewery (part of Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Co), celebrated their 25th Anniversary on Sunday, September 12, with a spectacular classical picnic concert, complete with laser show and firework finale!
The Proms show is a firm family favourite and on Sunday the guest vocalists of the night were opera star and TV sensation Wynne Evans and soprano Victoria Joyce.
However it was a very special guest appearance by Hannah Ingram-Moore and Benjie Ingram-Moore, which became a very poignant and emotional moment of the show.
The music came to a halt for Hannah and Benjie to talk about their late father/grandfather Captain Sir Tom Moore and his amazing legacy and achievement of raising £38.9m in three and a half weeks, with donations from 163 countries.
Hannah Ingram-Moore continues to raise further funds and awareness in her father’s honour, at The Captain Tom Foundation.
Hannah spoke about Captain Tom and the legacy he leaves behind, along with some wise personal words from his grandson Benjie who talked about the importance of family: “Please treasure your parents, please treasure your grandparents, they are absolutely incredible, please don’t take them for granted. Living with my grandfather was my biggest pleasure.”
Captain Sir Tom’s daughter Hannah went onto announce that the promoter of Bedford Park Concerts, Mark Harrison is giving 8000 tickets away to NHS workers for just a nominal charge of £1.00 for the 2022 Proms concert.
This £1.00 will be donated straight back to the NHS and given to The Bedford Hospital Charity. Hannah went onto thank the audience and our amazing NHS –
“Thank you for ensuring my father’s lasting legacy of hope lives on” Hannah Ingram-Moore
