What can I expect on the day

Delight in any of a number of picnic concerts at some of England's finest country house estates for a quintessentially British evening of music, entertainments and fireworks. These open-air concerts during the balmy months of July and August are incredibly popular.

Concert goers gather in the grounds to soak up the festival atmosphere and enjoy the classical live music. Beethoven's ambitious 'Battle Symphony', which includes the live firing of 193 cannons as part of the music score percussion, gives its name to these Battle Proms concerts, filled with soul-stirring music performed by a full orchestra on the purpose-built stage.

Every year the programme features star soloists from the world of music and of course, an emotional finale with an impressive fireworks display. The music programme includes a range of classy classics, from rousing traditional tunes and flag-waving favourites, to moving arias.

As well as the music, the battle theme continues at these proms with cavalry displays combining horsemanship with sword skills in a show that pays homage to Napoleonic times. With echoes of national pride and solidarity, these concerts also include a Spitfire flying display, which is always a crowd pleaser. The concert proper starts in the late afternoon so it's well worth getting there when the gates open around 4.00pm!

Of course, these concerts just wouldn't be the same without food or some Fizz, so why not upgrade your tickets to include the picnic basket option and you'll be furnished with a tasty spread or the Prosecco option for a bottle of bubbly!

Every year there is a full programme of concerts for you to choose from. The proms organisers support the charity Combat Stress, so each ticket sold will be helping raise funds too.

Picnic, music and friends all in a stunning setting, these concerts offer an excellent evening of summer entertainment that can be made even more special by sharing a delicious picnic too!

A lovely evening in a beautiful setting, the combination of music, fireworks, cannons and Spitfire was both enjoyable and memorable.
A larger or second screen would have further enhanced the experience and getting out of the car park after the concert was very poorly organised!
Yes, I recommend this product.

We were greeted at the gate with bagpipes playing, entry into the concert was swift and we had a fantastic evening from start to finish. The sound system was superb and so was all the entertainment, music and fireworks. One thing that might have enhanced the evening further would have been a second screen the other side of the stage
Yes, I recommend this product.
