A summer celebration with music, Spitfire, cannons, cavalry & fireworks

Pack up the hampers and champers for the 15th annual Burghley House Battle Proms! A firmly established favourite in the local calendar, the Battle Proms is attended by thousands of loyal fans every year and concert-goers are treated to an extraordinary afternoon and evening of unique 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’ 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 (TBC), 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 cannons providing a thunderous percussion!

Gates open 4.30pm, entertainments from 6.15pm, finish approx. 10.30pm
