Battle Proms Picnic Concert at Highclere Castle
A summer celebration with music, fireworks, Spitfire, cannons and cavalry!
The Battle Proms is the quintessential British ‘party in the park’ picnic concert, with sublime classical music from the 60-piece New English Concert Orchestra, complemented by
* Toe-tapping vintage vocals from The Battle Proms Belles
* Carefully choreographed Spitfire display by the iconic Grace Spitfire
* Breathtaking parachute display from The Red Devils, the British Army and Parachute Regiment's official display team
*Dramatic Cavalry and cannon displays
All culminating in a superb musical firework finale, The Battle Proms at Highclere takes place directly overlooking the impressive and iconic castle. The seat of the 5th Earl of Carnarvon who, in 1922, famously discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun with his colleague Howard Carter, Highclere Castle is now loved world-wide as 'The Real Downton Abbey' .
This summer Battle Proms Picnic Concerts celebrate their 25th anniversary, 5th year partnering SSAFA – the Armed Forces charity, over £500,000 raised for military charities, and their 21st annual concert at Highclere Castle!
