WITH some of the world’s biggest names in music and theatre descending on County Fermanagh this weekend it is little wonder access to Castle Coole is being restricted this weekend.
The concert, in front of an expected audience of around 6,000 people is part of broadcast celebrations to mark the Last Night Of The Proms, and will be hosted by Noel Thompson and Claire McCollum. 
This year there were applications for over 40,000 tickets with almost 6,000 tickets being distributed by random draw for the event.
All public ticket holders will be required to use the free parking and shuttle-bus service that will operate between Enniskillen Airport and Castle Coole from 4.30pm onwards, with return shuttle-buses operating throughout the evening for anyone wishing to leave before the concert’s scheduled finishing time of 10.30pm. 
All cars are required to be removed from the airport parking site at the very latest by 10am on Sunday.
For safety reasons, there will be no pedestrian access to Castle Coole for BBC Proms in the Park.
Concert goers are also reminded to dress appropriately for the weather, bring their own seat and all their tickets as they won’t be admitted without them.
Glass items are not permitted on site. And all drinks must be carried in plastic or card containers.
“If you can no longer use your ticket allocation, or don’t need all of your tickets, please get in touch as soon as possible to enable the ticket organisers to give them to someone else who has applied to attend,” said a spokesperson for the Proms, “Contact Ticketmaster at: www.ticketmaster.ie.”
Look and listen out for updated information about BBC Proms in the Park (including the weather forecast for BBC Northern Ireland’s Fermanagh festivities) across BBC Northern Ireland’s different services.
Viewers at home will be able to join in the excitement. On the night, audiences to the BBC Red Button can see a curated offering of highlights from Castle Coole and the three other Proms in the Park venues, available for 30 days thereafter on BBC iPlayer.

Highlights programmes will be recorded for later transmission on BBC NI television, BBC Four and the BBC iPlayer. Selected extracts from Castle Coole will also be available on BBC You Tube and the entire concert will also be broadcast live throughout the evening on BBC Radio Ulster from 7.30pm, presented by John Toal, and online for audiences at home and around the world.
