Pack a picnic and enjoy an unforgettable evening of glorious entertainment with this Outdoor Proms Concert for Two experience, which offers a spectacular open-air concert set in the grounds of some of the UK’s most celebrated stately homes!
The entertainments begin with a mounted display of British cavalry through the ages, followed by the toe-tapping live warm up act, and then look to the sky for the breathtaking parachute display.
Later, the evening gun salute heralds the commencement of the orchestral programme and the arrival of Britain’s favourite warplane. Amidst a volley of gunfire, you’ll hear the unmistakable sound of the Spitfire engine rumbling overhead, followed by a meticulously choreographed aerial display which takes place in the evening sky above.
The New English Concert Orchestra take to the stage with classical favourites such as the event’s signature piece, Beethoven's 'Battle Symphony', with a full complement of nearly 200 cannons, plus musket fire and fireworks providing a unique and breath-taking musical performance! The evening will close with a traditional flag-waving sing-along finale including Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and more, culminating in a dazzling fireworks extravaganza.
Whether you’re planning a romantic evening for a loved one or a celebration for a special couple, this could be the unique experience you have been looking for!

The evening began with a Napoleonic Cavalry Display at around 18:15PM, where you could either relax, sit in your seats and watch on the big screen or walk to the side of the stage to enjoy the mounted skill-at-arms display up close and personal.
Soon, followed by The Red Devils gracing the Proms Concert with a magnificent freefall demonstration at 18:45PM. Approximately, 5 members of The Red Devils jumped from the skies over the concert and landed 20 metres from the side of the stage.
The music began with ‘The Vignettes’, a duo who sang a range of classic vintage favourites, for old times’ sake. Most people were up and dancing at this point, enjoying the music and starting the night off right!
Before the Orchestra commenced, the evening gun salute went off to open the musical programme with the arrival of a Spitfire. Shortly after, the musical programme got into full swing at this point where a large range of classical favourites were played by the New English Concert Orchestra.
The whole evening was presented by Pam Rhodes, who commentated and gave historical background to each section of the evening or song, that was about to take place.
The evening closed around 22:30PM with a spectacular firework display and gave audience members the opportunity to sing-along and wave their English flags in the air. Certainly, a feel-good experience.
This experience is for any anyone who enjoys being outside on a summer’s evening with classical music and a bottle of Fizz. Families, couples and friends all joined in the entertainment. The Battle of the Proms is a wonderful experience and as long as the British weather holds out, you will undoubtedly have the best evening all summer.
Bring your jacket to wrap up warm, for the evening, as we all know what the British summer is like!
