Absolute fantastic show.
22 July 2018
Pack a picnic and join a summer celebration of music, fireworks, Spitfire, parachute display, cannons, cavalry and more with a day out at the Battle Proms Concert.
Unpack the hampers and uncork the champers at the UK’s premier open-air picnic proms concert. Since 1997 the Battle Proms team have proudly hosted these unique celebrations. Join the fun for a glorious evening of live music, stunningly choreographed aerial displays and thunderous cannon fire, all capped off with an unforgettable firework display.
With gates opening at 16.00, you’ll start by going back in time for a skill-at-arms demonstration by the mounted cavalry. The musical programme, commencing at around 19.30, features an array of soul-stirring classical favourites performed by the excellent New English Concert Orchestra. The evening’s signature musical performance of Beethoven’s ‘Battle Symphony’ will be just as the great man intended, with a full complement of 193 live-firing cannons complete with musket fire! A dazzling evening of unforgettable entertainment, this is a summer event to add to the calendar ASAP!
Your day gets underway at around 16.00. Grab a spot on the lawn and get comfy for a fabulous evening of entertainment. You’ll while away the hours enjoying a full orchestral programme from the excellent New English Concert Orchestra, and there’ll be Spitfire aerobatics, cavalry displays, live firing cannons and a dazzling firework finale. Bring along a picnic and bottle of your favourite tipple and prepare for a special afternoon.

Absolute fantastic show.
Had a lovely day weather perfect thought the orchestra excellent great atmosphere loved the cannons and fireworks
The evening was fantastic from beginning to end. Would recommend Battle Proms.
Really enjoyed it. The fly overs, parachute jumps, displays were all good; the jazz band and orchestra enjoyable. The fireworks great. The only snag waste hour it took to get out of the car park.
Great fun despite mixed weather; sorry not to see the Red Devil's because of the low cloud.
