This year’s Proms in the Park event will take place at the Wild Duck Café in Lapta on Wednesday, September 9, the Royal British Legion (RBL) Kyrenia Branch has announced.
Gates will open 6pm with the actual “Proms” being shown from 8:30pm, an RBL statement said.
Tickets, which are now available at the Wild Duck and also Best Seller book shops in Alsancak and Karakum, cost 10TL for members and 15TL for non-members.
“Sales are going well with over 50 sold so far and fancy dress is welcomed,” the press statement said. It added that people are welcome to bring their own food and drink, although the Wild Duck Café’s bar and kitchen will be open on the night with a “special menu” for the event.
Tickets are also available by phoning Brian Thomas on 0533 841 1882.
The RBL Kyrenia branch also announced that tickets for the 2015 RBL Theatre Players pantomime Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves will go on general sale to the public at the Lambousa Market box office from next saturday, September 5.
Front of house manager Andrew Cowley said: “All the profits raised go towards this year’s Poppy Appeal so it is a very worthy cause which we hope that expat community will support as much as they have done in previous years.”
