What is 'The Wight Proms'?
The annual open-air festival which launched in 2018, celebrating comedy, musical theatre and classical music, and featuring free arts workshops.
The 4-day festival normally takes place in the grounds of Northwood House, the grade II* listed Georgian manor house, but this year enjoy the concerts from the comfort of your own home.
There has never before been a music festival like this on the IOW, catering to lovers of both classical music and musical theatre, as well as comedy.

- "Yesterday was a wonderful day out...we all had such a lovely time...Next summer we shall be attending each concert." Julie Bell
- "Just wanted to say how absolutely fabulous the weekend at the Wight Proms was - to have such extraordinary talent up-close and in Cowes was beyond belief. Non-stop seamless musical magic, and really family friendly (my son also loved the giant Connect 4 game at the back!)" Ali Wheeler
