A special beer has been launched to mark the 15th annual Shipston Proms.
Noah’s Noggin has been produced at a Warwickshire micro-brewery to commemorate the performance of a community opera during the event.
The opera is Noye’s Fludde – Noah’s Flood – by Benjamin Britten. It is being performed during the Proms by the Orchestra of the Swan, students from Shipston Primary and High Schools and singers and musicians from in and around the town.
The beer is produced by Tim Young, owner of The Norman Knight pub and Patriot Brewery at Whichford,near Shipston on Stour,Warwickshire CV36 5PE
“We have a lot of music at the pub, and we are always happy to support the Proms, “said Tim.
“Noah’s Noggin contains English hops and three American hops to give it a distinctive flavour”
The Proms programme begins on Thursday (20th July) with a concert by Clare Teal and the Midland Youth Jazz Orchestra at Townsend Hall, Shipston.
The launch concert at the same venue the following night is The New Forbidden with Loyd Grossman, and Longfellow who won last year’s Shipston Fame Contest.
The two-week event includes performances throughout the area for all musical tastes. The Last Night of the Proms is on 6th July with the David Bowie tribute band ‘Ultimate Bowie’ plus the ukulele supergroup, Rinky Dinks.
