The stage is being set on the lawns of Glamis Castle for what is shaping up to be a magnificent Grand Scottish Prom on July 30.

Over the past week a brand new stage has been built to accommodate eighty RSNO musicians with their instruments.

This is the largest stage to be erected in the eighteen year history of the Proms at Glamis.

A castle spokesperson said: “We are very excited about this year’s Prom and feel that postponing last years was the right decision.

“The organisation of such a large event is a massive undertaking and all angles have to be covered in fine detail.

“ We are very happy with the way Alan Hilary Events have organised things and look forward to working with his crew.

“The stage took eight riggers 48 hours to erect and a special crane was brought in to help lay a track before beginning with the build.

“Alan Hilary Events and Impact Productions will bring in suppliers from the local area where possible, and that’s very important to us as it will ultimately generate funds into the local economy.

“Tickets sales are going well with loyal Prom goers taking advantage of the Super Early Bird and Early Bird ticket offers and booking well in advance.

“However, we know the last few days will be exceptionally busy with Prom goers waiting until the last minute to check the weather forecast.

“The Met check long term forecast is currently looking fair which we are of course all delighted about”.

The Early Bird rate of £30.50 will only be available until 5pm on Thursday, July 28 thereafter tickets will be available at the Gate price of £35.
