Last Night on the Prom (2009)

With the sudden cancellation of Cockington Proms, I am going to produce a renegade show called 'Last Night on the Prom' The venue will either be Princess Gardens or Torre Abbey meadow depending on where I can get power! Anyone who has not just spent money on a ticket, but has spent money on food, drink, picnic supplies, baby sitters etc will still be able to enjoy a FREE day out. I have to stress that I am doing this without any permission from any authorities and it may well cause friction amongst the powers at be, but their rules and regulations do not help the little people who have been looking forward to this day for months. Before anyone starts picking on Torbay Council on this site I have to let you know that the council had nothing to do with organising and now the failing of this years proms and they are unaware of my plans.
I will get as many entertainers as possible to support us and we will have a DJ there too to help create a party. We will have fun I promise.
If any company could help us by providing a small mobile stage and a generater we would be very grateful. Very very grateful.
Please email this on to anyone who you knew was going to Sundays event and tell them to come back to this area on visionary dictionary to keep updated on final location.
3.00pm till they stop us or 8.00pm (ish) depending on how we are doing.
All acts wishing to offer their services please add a comment below. Lets do it!
Any questions, comments or help with the generater or stage please leave a comment below or email info@visionarydictionary. com
Hope to see you there, lets hope it doesn't rain.

Thanks everyone for the support, I have spoken to the man upstairs and I believe it will be overcast, turning brighter in the afternoon. Wrap up warm just in case. I have a carrier bag to put over the speaker!

Hi Dean, so sorry mate, not got the set up to take drums etc but I promise if ever I do an official one I will get you on. Everything has to be set up to break down and get off in 10 minutes in-case the authorities come crashing down on us. Really appreciate your support though and will use you on other gigs. Cheers Dean, hope to see you there prior to my arrest!

Hi Steve,
I'm the lead guitarist and singer of the band Serpents Kiss. We are a young local band and were the winners of the TAPA Battle of the Bands 2009. We could play a slot for you, just email to confirm.

I'm at a pig roast in Wallheath on Sunday for a 21st b'day party, otherwise I would have joined you all on your picnic accidentally seated by rehearsing entertainers. Have fun!

By fizz Bill, I hope you mean POP! "I must inform people that I am NOT-condoning drinking in an un-licenced public area and you do so at your own risk of being moved on." I am actually only holding a rehearsal for my summer show. However if you are having a picnic near where I am rehearsing that is totally independent of me and purely by chance, if you like my rehearsal and decide to gather more information about my new summer show and would lke to give me a £2.00 deposit for a theatre ticket, then I will be happy to give those £2s to a local high profile charity who will not be there on the day but could really use our support, and you will get £2 off your ticket if you decide to come to the summer show.

Many thanks for the invite to perform this Sunday. It is about time that someone looks to cutting through the "it can't be done" red tape attitude this country has bridled itself with and just got on and did it. Well dine mate look forward to a great family Sunday afternoons entertainment. See you at 3.

You may have to employ some bouncers to keep the council boys away ... but good luck and if you need any ancillary power (not mega watts) see me the Therapia shop just inside the Pavilion harbourside entrance.

OK, we have power, we have insurance, we have a PA sysyem, we have sound engineer, I think we have stage, just waiting for confimation. Still need some form of barriers to create working area at front of stage for any dancers and steps for the front of stage. Rowcroft are aware that although they cannot be seen to rattle buckets, they can be present and take pledges. So all in all looking good. Don't ring the council asking for details it is nothing to do with them, they are not aware it is going on. We have the support of the Herald Express and we will be in Saturdays paper. Please feel free to contact Westcountry or BBC Spotlight but stress that we do not want anyone contacting tha council for quotes because they know nothing. Remember, our council were in no way conected with the Cockington Proms and were not responsible for any goings on there and I believe they will not stop us on Sunday unless too many people keep bringing it to their attention. Just get a crowd & bring...[more]

You do all realise that TGV won't do very well in a prison cell don't you? However, I will be there at his request. It will be fun, but I can't help feeling a little worried.

Good for you Steve! I'll help in whatever way I can. If only I'd know this was going to happen by last Monday a.m. I'd have found space for a mention in tomorrow's LoweDown. Wish I could make the gig myself, but I'll on-air between 20-22 hrs on Sunday and not back in town before 23 hrs. Hope it all goes well.
