WightpromswednesdaysthewightpromsOrganisers of the ‘Wight Proms’ festival, held in Cowes each August, have announced ‘Wight Proms Wednesdays’, which is due to begin February.

They would like to bring their audience a bit of the ‘Wight Proms’ throughout the year and not just in August for the festival, so they have launched their first-ever lunchtime concert series.

Taking place monthly at 12:30 across 5 Wednesdays, and each lasting 40 minutes, they are the ideal lunch break addition, taking place in the Ballroom at Northwood House, Cowes.
