A triumphant return for Silsden Proms on the Farm 2022

Press Release

The event, last held six years ago, has been staged once again – with a new team behind it and at a fresh venue.

And organisers have hailed the extravaganza as a huge success.

Around 700 people attended. And more than £8,000 was raised, to be split between Oxenhope Sue Ryder Hospice Manorlands and Silsden Methodist Church.

The event ran for 13 years, until 2016, and was due to return in 2020 and then again last year – but the pandemic scuppered the plans.

For its comeback it relocated from the original home at Sycamore Farm, Brunthwaite, to Jackson's Field.

Music was provided by the Lothersdale-based Swing City Big Band, The 1960 Four and Silver Tewit Band – which were joined by soloists Sarah Halstead and April Elizabeth for a Last Night of the Proms-style finale.

Crowds danced and waved flags as performances culminated with favourites including Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia and The Dambusters March.

Dozens of gazebos were erected around the field and decorated by attendees, who brought picnics to enjoy. A prize for best-dressed gazebo was awarded to a group which had recreated The Mad Hatter's Tea Party.

The evening also included a raffle and charity auction, with items donated by local businesses.

Compere for the event was Silsden resident Stuart Clarkson, of Rombalds Radio, who also acted as auctioneer.

During the interval, a presentation was made in recognition of the founders of the original Silsden Proms on the Farm – Rosalie Holroyd, Sylvia Atkinson and Stewart and Fiona Hanson.

Lead organiser William Jowitt said it was "great" to have the event back, and he thanked everyone for their support.

"On behalf of the whole team I'd like to say a massive 'thank you' to everyone who came," he said.

"We're delighted with the amount raised to support Manorlands and Silsden Methodist Church.

"We couldn't have done it without the support of the individuals and businesses locally who gave their time, money and services to ensure the return of Silsden Proms on the Farm was such a huge success.

"It's great to have the Proms back and we're looking forward to working to bring another brilliant evening to the town next year."

Thank you to all who supported us in many ways

Next Year

We look forward to seeing you there
