As a community we have been working hard towards our summer event Proms in the Park which, after three years of absence and uncertainty, was due to take place on Monday 18th July at 6:30pm.

The Met office have forecast temperatures of up to 37 degrees Celsius for Monday 18th July, well into the evening, which poses a risk to health. As a result, I have taken the decision to cancel this year’s event. Whilst I appreciate this decision will be met with some disappointment, the health, safety and wellbeing of our students and local community has always been our absolute priority.

Please look after yourself and others during the coming heatwave, particularly those who might be considered vulnerable.
