Battle Proms Picnic Concert – Blenheim Palace – 6th July 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 programme of captivating classical music from the 60 piece New English Concert Orchestra, complemented by toe-tapping vintage vocals, breathtaking Spitfire display, sensational freefall demonstration by The Red Devils parachute team (TBC), dramatic Napoleonic cavalry display and ground shaking live fire from over 200 cannons.

In a stunning setting overlooking the iconic Column of Victory, 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!

Since 2004, through audience donations and contributions from concert profits, Battle Proms events have raised over £389,000 for military charities. In 2019 they will again be supporting SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, who provide lifelong support for our Forces and their families, whenever and wherever they are needed.
