Whitehill and Bordon to host proms and soapbox derby this July
The Shed is not just a fantastic place to eat and hang out, but the venue also offers the perfect backdrop for days and evenings full of entertainment providing unforgettable experiences of music and fun. There is a truly top selection lined up over July:
A Night at The Proms: Summer Serenade – Saturday 8th July
Due to the resounding success of Whitehill & Bordon’s first Night at The Proms event last year, the Alton Concert Orchestra is back to delight with another evening of music. This year’s ‘Summer Serenade’ theme is set to bring a repertoire of classical renditions, music from stage and screen and, of course, the sing-along favourites.
Visitors can bring picnics and blankets and listen to the music echoing around the beautiful Town Park at The Shed in the summer evening sunshine.
Soapbox Derby: A Charity Race – Sunday 23rd July
A shout out to all those budding Lewis Hamiltons, Max Verstappens and Soapbox cart builders as Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company (WBRC) is inviting entrants for amateur teams and pro teams to sign-up. All teams with their handmade soapbox carts will get a chance of two runs of the Chalet Hill downhill course in a bid for ‘soap and glory’ with winners holding ultimate bragging rights. There is an extended track this year with five exciting jumps, slalom and some tough scrutineering to ensure equal opportunity for all.
