The annual Pink Proms event returns to Teddington on Saturday 8th February at 7.30pm and promises to be a great night of music and entertainment.
The evening is hosted in Normansfield Theatre by the LGBT Equality & Ally groups for Richmond and Wandsworth councils, with music from the London Gay Symphonic Winds.
Pink Proms celebrates LGBTQ history month and all proceeds raised will go to Opening Doors - a charity that provides information and support services specifically for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trains (LGBT ) people over the age of 50 in the UK.
Cllr James Chard, Deputy Mayor of Richmond upon Thames, will be in attendance and said:
> "This will be a fabulous night out for everyone to enjoy whilst raising money for a very good cause.
> "The London Gay Symphonic Winds is a wind band of around 50 woodwind, brass and percussion players who guarantee an eclectic night of fun and quality entertainment!"

How to get there
- By train: The nearest train station is Hampton Wick - 7 minutes walk away. It connects easily with Waterloo, Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Wimbledon and Richmond. Turn right out the station and then follow directions below as if driving from Kingston. Langdon Park is off Kingston Road, opposite Wick Road. We are in the big building on the right once you have turned into Langdon Park.
- By bus: The 281 stops outside the building, travelling from Tolworth and Kingston in one direction, and Teddington and Twickenham in the other. The 285, which links Kingston and Heathrow airport, also stops outside.
- By car: If you're driving from Kingston, drive past Hampton Wick station on the right and then take the first right after Normansfield Avenue. This isn't named on the map but is called "Langdon Park". Turn immediately right again and park in one of the spaces marked "L.D.C. Reserved Parking". Walk down the gravel path (edged with red brick) and you will come to a big red door on the left, which is the main entrance into the building. If you are approaching from the Twickenham/Richmond direction then take your first left after Holmesdale Road into Langdon Park and then carry on as above.
