The Last, Last Night of the Proms - 10th July 2021


*********SOLD OUT*********

Alton is sad to say goodbye to our annual open-air concert in the Public Gardens but we will be putting on a finale concert showcasing all the 'best bits' from over a decade of performances - it will be a concert not to be missed!




Thank you to everyone who has booked tickets to Last Night of the Proms, and for your ongoing patience as we have worked so hard to ensure we can deliver the event in a safe way for all attendees.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind all visitors that we request they show proof of their tickets and one of the following two options on arrival:

Option 1: Proof of two vaccinations:

- Showing your NHS COVID-19 vaccination card with details of both vaccinations completed.

- Registering on the NHS Website or downloading the NHS App onto your smartphone so you can use the NHS COVID Pass to show your vaccination status.

Please note: The second vaccination must have been received 14 days or more prior to the day of your visit.
Option 2: Proof of a negative lateral flow test

The test need to be taken on the date of your visit. Free Lateral flow tests can be ordered on the NHS website or collected from your local pharmacy. Children under the age of 11 are not required to take a test.

Proof of a negative lateral flow can be obtained by:

- Logging your negative test result on the NHS website. You will then be sent a text or email, which can be shown at entry.

Anyone who tests positive must not attend and should follow government advice.

Alton Town Council and Alton Concert Orchestra are very pleased to announce that this year’s annual open-air concert in the Public Gardens is going ahead, despite the current government restrictions on the evening of Saturday 10th July.

With social distancing measures in place, a larger marquee required, challenges for rehearsal space and availability of facilities on the day, ticketing and covid safe measures in place, it has been a real challenge but we are delighted to be putting on a finale concert showcasing all the 'best bits' from over a decade of performances!
Due to the current restrictions the venue capacity will be capped at 50% and this will be a prebooked ticketed event, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

As always there is no charge for admission but cash donations towards the staging the event are gratefully received on the evening. 

All visitors to the event (age 11+) will be required to show proof of a negative Rapid Lateral Flow Test taken on the day of the event or proof of their double Covid vaccination (e.g. vaccination card or Zoe-Covid app). Rapid lateral flow testing is now available free to anybody without symptoms. You can get your tests from pharmacies, testing sites, or order online from the NHS to be delivered to your home by registering at:

Please remember to bring your deckchairs, picnic blankets and hampers with you – to dedicate more space to the audience there will not be any catering concessions at the event, except for the resident Acorns café serving hot beverages, soft drinks, and cakes.
