End the summer in style on Saturday 1 September 2012

The organisers of Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park are offering concert-goers the chance to see this summer's spectacular outdoor concert in style.

While Lichfield Proms is a free event, and everyone is welcome to bring their own seating, picnic baskets and blankets, for just £10 music lovers can snap up a seat at a VIP table in front of the stage.

This year's VIP area is sponsored by Chandlers Lakeside Bistro in Beacon Park. The new bistro, which launched in May 2012, is open 7 days a week offering a great range of hot and cold snacks, drinks and meals.

Emily Morden, Lakeside Bistro's Director, commented: "We are really pleased to be sponsoring the VIP area and showing our support for this much-loved community event. Sitting at a VIP table is a fantastic way to make the evening extra special for all your family and friends, and, from just £40 for a table of four, it is a fantastic price. But hurry, as there are limited seats available and you don't want to miss your chance to enjoy the event of the summer in style."

VIP seats cost £10 each and can be bought in fours or sixes. To book a VIP table, please call 01543 308775 or email
