Silsden Proms on the Farm

Cancelled until 17th July 2021!

Just Giving Sue Ryder Manorlands Appeal

Saturday 18th July 2020 should have seen the return of Silsden Proms on the Farm but the Corona virus has made that impossible this year.

The lockdown has also meant that many other fundraising activities for Sue Ryder Manorlands throughout this year will not now take place leaving them in a precarious position financially.

We are conscious that the money from the Proms on the Farm is a significant fundraiser for them. Manorlands has continued to operate and provide essential support to our community at this time and it has therefore been suggested that people who would have attended the Proms evening may wish to donate their ticket money (£12 each) or part of, to Sue Ryder Manorlands.

To that end we have set up a Just Giving page where donations can be made.

We know the team at Sue Ryder Manorlands will appreciate any support you can give.

We sincerely hope we will be able to return in 2021 with a great Silsden Proms on the Farm event.

Very many thanks

The Silsden Proms Team

Return of Silsden Proms on the Farm in 2020 is cancelled.

The return of Proms on the Farm in 2020 had been much anticipated but regrettably given the current corona virus pandemic it has been decided this event will not take place in 2020.

William Jowitt, Chair of the Silsden Proms Group, said “It was disappointing to have to make this decision as the return of the Proms event had been widely welcomed and several sponsors had already committed to supporting the event. We anticipated a strong demand for tickets judging by the response we had to the announcement that the event was to return in 2020. We have already put 17th July 2021 in the diary for next year so the team's efforts will be directed to making that a success”

Proms on the Farm

Saturday 18th July 2020

is back after a 3 year break with a new organising team and new venue. The new team has representatives from the Silsden and Steeton Sue Ryder Manorlands Support Group and Silsden Methodist Church.

The team have applied for a licence to hold the event on 18th July 2020 on Jackson’s Field in Silsden. For those of you who have been before then the planned format is the same as previous years but in a new venue.

If you haven't been before then come along and enjoy and evening of music from Tewit Silver Band, Sultans of Swing and 1960 Four band including selections from Last Night of the Proms with soloist Sarah Halstead, so don't forget your flags.

You can book a space to erect a Gazebo (there is a prize for the best dressed Gazebo and guests) or just bring a chair and sit in the arena. Don't forget your food and drink. The field is open from 2.00pm for you to set up the Gazebo with the music starting at 6.30 -11.00pm. See the Ticket page information on pricing and where to purchase tickets.

There will be an Auction, a Raffle and a Bottle Tombola stall and all proceeds from the evening will go to Sue Ryder Manorlands and Silsden Methodist Church to help support the Community work.

The present team would like to thank the previous group who organised 13 very successful evenings and photos of past events can be found on the Gallery page and John Liddle's blog.

We hope you enjoy the evening and help us raise money for the charities.
