This year's performers include the fabulous tenor, Jack Foley, returning to Proms & Prosecco in the Park by popular demand. Also performing is the stunning string quartet, String Infusion. This all-female quartet play electric and acoustic strings and are just as at home performing an Oasis chart hit as the classical favourites! You may have even spotted them performing on the X Factor or at the O2!
Headlining this year's event is the incredible Mary-Jess, British winner of the Chinese 'X-Factor'. Since winning that competition in front of a TV audience of 70 million people, Mary-Jess has recorded tracks for the Downton Abbey albums, performed at the FA Cup Final for a world wide audience of 300 million, sung for royalty, and on numerous TV programmes in the UK and in China. Mary-Jess will be rounding off her performance at Proms & Prosecco in the Park by leading the crowd in all the Last Night of the Proms favourites.
