As a result of the impact of the Coronavirus, organisers of The Wight Proms have made the difficult but important decision to postpone this year’s event by 5 weeks.

The Northwood House-based festival was originally due to take place in July but it is now scheduled to take place on 20th-23rd August 2020.

Now in its third year, The Wight Proms has enjoyed 2 years of sell-out audiences for their comedy, musical theatre and classical proms shows.

Festival Founder Mike Christie has said:

“It is so humbling to see what an incredible island community we have, emphasised by this truly testing situation. I hope that everyone is keeping safe and well in these unprecedented times. It really was so moving on Thursday last week to be involved in the big applause from windows and balconies for all those who are working on the front line. It is clear that once we emerge from the light at the end of the tunnel there will be big celebrations, so we look forward to the Wight Proms being part of that for some, and the lift people will desperately need.”
