Details

Pack up the hampers and champers and join the crowd at the annual Battle Proms Concert, returning to the stunning grounds overlooking Burghley House on Saturday 8 July in 2017.

Last year over 7,000 people attended this very special event, now a firmly established favourite in the local calendar. Approaching its 13th year at Burghley, the series itself is celebrating 20 years since the first Battle Proms was staged, and there’s a reason it continues to grow year on year.

Concert-goers will be treated to an extraordinary afternoon and evening of entertainment at this party in the park with a difference.

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 classical pieces and conclude with a ‘last night of the proms’ sing-along with favourites such as Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and more.

The musical programme will be augmented by a toe-tapping warm-up act, thrilling Napoleonic cavalry displays, a meticulously choreographed aerial display from a WWII Spitfire, live firing cannons and, of course, spectacular fireworks. The Battle Proms is still believed to be the only opportunity in the world to see their signature piece – Beethoven’s Battle Symphony – performed as he composed it: with 193 live Napoleonic cannon providing a thunderous percussion!
