In recent years open air summer concerts have become a British vogue. The luxury of listening to beautiful live music while picnicking in the grounds of a stately home cannot be beaten. Combine this with a fantastic pyrotechnical spectacular and an unforgettable evening is created. The Battle Proms Concerts are an incredible mixer of celebrated classical music, cannons, cavalry, infantry and fireworks. The concerts start with a salute from the 25 pounder Field Gun and Gun Team while Napoleonic cavalry re-enactors perform ‘skill at arms’. Then follows a beautiful programme of inspiring classical music performed by The New English Concert Orchestra. The main feature of the concert is Beethoven’s Wellington’s Victory or ‘The Battle Symphony’. This was written to celebrate Wellington’s famous victory at Vittoria in 1813. The score incorporates 193 cannons ‘played’ by a percussionist on stage. Combined with this are fireworks, pyrotechnical effects and infantry re-enactors. The result is an incredible display which is unforgettable. The concert concludes with a traditional Proms finale including Rule Britannia, Portsmouth, Sailors Hornpipe, Jerusalem and Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance. All with half an hour of sensational fireworks. With the gates opening 3 hours before the performances there is plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere, enjoy your picnic and explore the wonderful stalls and traditional fairground sideshows.
