Opera Star and BBC Radio presenter Wynne Evans will headline along with Broadway and West End sensation Marisha Wallace.

Wynne Evans is regularly singing to millions for the TV advertising campaign that has made him a household name as the 'opera star' Gio Compario.

Although a spoof opera star in the Go Compare insurance adverts, Wynne is a professionally trained opera singer with over 25 years’ experience, and has a debut album ‘A Song in

My Heart’ that went to the Number 1 in the classical charts.

Bedford Park Proms also has one of the best laser shows in the country and a firework spectacular to finish the evening.

And if that wasn't enough, you can also bring your own drinks and picnics!

Tickets are available online and are £25 plus booking fees for adults, £5 for children and under fives go free.
