The Wight Proms will be split into four themed nights: Friday’s A Wight Laugh; Wight at the Musicals on Saturday; Last Wight of the Proms on Sunday.

On the Thursday night, an outdoor cinema will screen The Greatest Showman and Dirty Dancing and Prokofiev’s Peter & the Wolf will entertain the crowds on Saturday afternoon.

Festival Founder Mike Christie said,

“Last year’s headliners received such high plaudits so we knew we had set the bar very high. We’ve been working hard to enhance the offering from last year and are delighted to
announce these internationally-renowned acts; together with another great line-up of local talent, including Company B-UK, The Rockafellas, Theatretrain and the winners from the IOW Music, Dance & Drama Festival.”

Tickets got on sale on 1 April.
