The annual Great British Prom outdoor concert at Blickling Estate is taking a break this year, organisers have announced.

Lisa Ward of Revival Productions said the event would return in 2020.

She said: “We have been running this type of concert for many years and experience shows that sometimes it’s good to have a break, with a view to coming back with renewed vigour.

“We know that this event has become a firm favourite in the Norfolk calendar and so we are planning to come back bigger and better in 2020.”

The event’s fireworks finale had to be cancelled last year because the ground was too hot.

However, the Proms’ companion concert, Classic Ibiza, is still on, and will take place on Friday, August 9.

Jo Bosch, Blicklings’s visitor experience manager, said: “Classic Ibiza promises to be even bigger and better this year.” Visit www.classicibiza.co.uk for more.
