We’ve helped support local Warwickshire talent with a £250 donation to a long-standing Shipston music festival.
Founded in 1998, Shipston Proms is organised by a small group of volunteers whose aim is to provide two weeks of musical entertainment in the town, showcasing a range of music for all tastes and ages and encouraging participation by as many local musicians as possible. This year’s event kicked off on 14th June and brought a fortnight of local favourites alongside emerging musicians to the town. The Proms took place in multiple venues across Shipston-on-Stour, close to our Herdwick Gate and Herdwick Fold developments.
Peter White, Proms Treasurer, said: “We’re so grateful to Taylor Wimpey for this generous donation. Shipston Proms relies on the time given by its volunteers as well as the kind donations from our sponsors, such as Taylor Wimpey. This year’s Proms was a huge success, with many exciting new acts and a talent competition which culminated in the winner performing on the final night.”
Anne Wallace, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey Midlands, said: “We’re so proud to support Shipston Proms with a £250 donation. The work that we do extends beyond simply building great houses and it’s always such an honour to give back to local communities. Our first development in Shipston-on-Stour, Herdwick Gate was met with such high demand and we’re delighted to continue to give back to the community in Shipston-on-Stour with the launch of our new development, Herdwick Fold.”
