It’s Platinum Jubilee year, so what better way to celebrate than with a “Last Night of the Proms” charity evening?

The event, which took place at Dukinfield Town Hall on Saturday, May 21, was organised by the Civic Mayor of Tameside, Cllr Janet Cooper, as a rousing way to bring down the curtain on her time in office.

All the Royal Albert Hall favourites were featured – “Land of Hope and Glory”, “Rule Britannia” and “Jerusalem” – as well as other classics.

Ashton Brass Band supplied the music, fresh from taking first place at the North West Area (first section) championships in Blackpool, and popular vocalist Dom Collins lead the singing.

All proceeds from the evening go to the Mayor’s charity appeal which is raising funds for Cascade Baby Bundles and the Friends of Tameside Young Carers

The Mayor said: “Everyone loves a good sing-song and there can’t be any that are better than the Last Night of the Proms as we celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, bring my time as mayor to a close, raise money for some very good causes, and, most of all, had a really good time and sang ourselves hoarse.”
