Event Info

Join the crowds at the Battle Proms for an exceptional evening of sublime classical music, carefully choreographed Spitfire and cavalry displays, dramatic cannon fire and a stunning firework finale, all taking place in some of the most stunning stately home locations in the UK.

Much loved TV and radio presenter, author and celebrated compère Pam Rhodes will be hosting the event and we are delighted to welcome back the Rockabellas, today’s answer to The Andrews Sisters, who will warm up the audience with an upbeat performance of unrivalled vintage vocals to keep your toes tapping as you picnic and get you into the party mood.

Later in the programme Battle Promenaders will be treated to the Battle Proms signature piece – Beethoven’s Battle Symphony – performed as he intended with the full complement of 193 live firing cannon providing a thunderous percussion! Conducted by Douglas Coombes and performed by the New English Concert Orchestra, the programme will also include soul-stirring classical favourites suited to the grandeur of the historic setting, from Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture (which also gets the ‘Battle Proms treatment’ of live cannon fire) to a sing-along finale packed with all the prom favourites such as Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia. Accompanying the orchestra will be superb soprano Denise Leigh, who will perform enchanting arias before bringing the finale to life - and the crowd to their feet – as the spectacular firework display lights up the summer sky.

Widely regarded as the most exciting summer proms concert in the country, this is an event that fans return to year after year, to enjoy a memorable night out with friends or for a significant celebration.
