Lesley Garrett at Wight Proms

Famous soprano singer Lesley Garrett will be starring at this year’s Wight Proms at Northwood House.

The multi-talented Ms Garrett, an opera singer, musician, broadcaster and media personality, will be appearing at The Last Night of the Proms on September 1.

The Wight Proms begin on August 29, and will include cinema, comedy, musicals and classical music, and the rousing celebration of British music will reach a fitting climax on September 1, when Ms Garrett leads the singing of such famous numbers as ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘Pomp and Circumstance’, amid the traditional flag-waving.

It is not the first time Ms Garrett has been to the Isle of Wight. When she was here a few years ago, she emphasised how much she loved the Island, and said then she would love to come back one day.
