Ragley Hall Battle Proms Picnic Concert on Saturday 10th August 2019
Pack up the hampers and champers and join thousands of loyal fans for an exceptional afternoon and evening of entertainment at the 15th annual Blenheim Palace Battle Proms Concert.
Enjoy a full 2 hour programme of captivating classical music from the 60 piece New English Concert Orchestra, led by Douglas Coombes MBE and compered by much-loved BBC presenter Pam Rhodes. The extensive programme of entertainments also includes toe-tapping vintage vocals, breathtaking Spitfire display, sensational freefall demonstration by The Red Devils parachute team, dramatic Napoleonic cavalry display, and groundshaking live fire from over 200 cannons!
In the stunning lakeside setting at historic Ragley Hall, this quintessentially British ‘party in the park’ features magnificent musical firework displays, culminating in a flag waving, sing-a-long 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 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 firing Napoleonic cannons providing a thunderous percussion!
Gates open 4.00pm, entertainments from 5.45pm, finish approx. 10.00pm
