Every summer thousands of picnic fans and music lovers gather their friends, pack up a picnic and head to celebrated local landmark Burghley House in Stamford for a spectacular open-air concert.
The full 2 hour orchestral concert from the 60 piece New English Concert Orchestra, led by Douglas Coombes MBE and compered by much-loved BBC presenter Pam Rhodes, will include a host of well-known uplifting classical pieces and conclude with a ‘last night of the proms’ flag-waving sing-along with favourites such as Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and more under a sky of breath-taking fireworks.
The extensive programme of entertainments also includes a toe-tapping warm-up act, thrilling historic cavalry displays, a meticulously choreographed aerial display from a WWII Spitfire, The Red Devils parachute display team, live firing cannons and, of course, spectacular fireworks.
The Battle Proms is still believed to be the only opportunity in the world to see the signature piece – Beethoven’s ‘Battle Symphony’ – performed as he composed it: with 193 live Napoleonic cannons providing a thunderous percussion!
This quintessentially British ‘party in the park’ features magnificent musical firework displays, culminating in a flag waving, sing-a-long, firework spectacular including all the ‘last night of the proms’ finale favourites such as Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory.
The Battle Proms returns Burghley House, Stamford on Saturday 11th July. Are you ready to pack up the hampers and champers and enjoy an unforgettable night out?
