A proms event that had to be cancelled twice due to Covid-19 restrictions is finally returning next month.

A Festive Last Night of the Proms will take place at The Church of St Peter & St Paul in Wisbech on Saturday December 4.

The last proms event, held in September 2019 with a 'music of the last 75 years' theme, took the near 200 attendees back to the 40s and all the way to modern day.
