Hundreds of people turned out to Coryhill, in Combe Raleigh, for a Last Night of the Proms charity event at the weekend.

Those attending the event, which was organised by Chris and Caroline Padget, enjoyed a feast of sunshine and music on Saturday, July 2.

A crowd of 500 music lovers took their picnics to enjoy at the lakeside and to listen to a variety of music from Honiton Town Band, Exeter Cathedral Choristers, the gentlemen of the Cathedral Choir, Isca Voices and a rousing finale of favourites from Les Miserables and Last Night of the Proms led By Julie De’Ath Lancaster and the Sheldon Singers.

All proceeds from the charity event will go to the Third Millennium Campaign music appeal, which aims to sustain Exeter Cathedral for the future.
