Merton Council has just opened its free prize draw to win two VIP tickets worth £120 to its first ever Classics in the Park concert which takes place this September.
The online draw is easy to enter. All people need to do is complete the form on the council’s website by midnight on 31 August 2015. The council will notify the winner by email.
VIP tickets give classics fans premium seating, chocolates and champagne, as they listen to the sweet sounds of the City of London Sinfonia who will be playing a programme of favourites, including Bach’s Air on a G String, Pachelbel’s Canon, Puccini’s O mio bambino caro, Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz and much more.
Under the baton of Stuart Stratford, the City of London Sinfonia will perform in the athletics stadium in Wimbledon Park, which will be transformed into an open air music venue for 11 and 12 September 2015 from 7.30pm until 10.30pm
Tickets are on sale through Merton Council’s website and are priced £30 for a standard seat and £40 for a premium seat. Corporate packages and VIP tickets are available from £60 per person.
Leader of Merton Council, Councillor Stephen Alambritis, said: “This is going to be a wonderful evening and I would encourage everyone to enter the draw. You’ve got to be in it to win it! The programme offers something for everyone and maybe this could the opportunity for some to discover the variety and beauty of classical music.”
