The festival, which lasts for 16 days, marks the 26th edition and is a presentation by the Shipston Proms committee, involving veterans Tim and Helen Porter. The pair have been involved in creating every one of the Shipson Proms.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, two installments of the event were missed.

The venue for these music-filled nights includes pubs, schools, churches and halls in Shipston-on-Stour and neighbouring villages; Brailes, Ilmington, Barcheston and Tredington.

Gloucestershire band, The Dropouts (based in Moreton-in-Marsh and Cheltenham), were star performers on the last night of the 2023's Shipston Proms, impressing attendees with their covers of songs by Queen, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Motorhead amongst others.

They have expressed their excitement at returning for this year's proms.
