Since their first concert in 1997 the Battle Proms have been treating their audiences to a heady mix of sublime classical music, carefully choreographed Spitfire and cavalry displays, dramatic cannon fire and stunning firework finales. As the series enters its 20th anniversary, the elegant Elizabethan Burghley House will once again play host to the opening night as the Battle Proms returns to Stamford on Saturday 8 July 2017.

The Battle Proms is also a firm diary fixture at Hatfield House, Hertfordshire, with a loyal audience and up to 8,000 people attending each concert annually. This year the Battle Proms comes to the leafy and historic Queen Elizabeth Oak Field at Hatfield House on Saturday 15 July.

The ever popular concert series takes much of its historical inspiration from the Napoleonic wars, staging a colourful skill-at-arms cavalry display in full regalia and the only place in the world you can see Beethoven’s Battle Symphony performed as he intended – with 193 live firing cannons providing a thunderous percussion. In a very special addition for the 20th anniversary programme, the Red Devils – the Parachute Regiment and British Army’s official display team – will perform their daring freefall demonstration in the skies above the concerts!

And if this wasn’t enough excitement for a summer’s afternoon, the Battle Proms have worked closely with the Grace Spitfire team over the years to create one of the most carefully choreographed Spitfire displays you are likely to catch this summer. So much more than just a fly past, this display has the iconic plane dancing through the sky to the opening pieces of the orchestral performance by the 60 piece New English Concert Orchestra, which culminates in a flag-waving, sing-a-long ‘last night of the Proms’ style finale as a spectacular firework display lights up the sky!
