Hotels near the Battle Proms
Set in the beautiful Althorp Estate, the Battle Proms concert in August comprises traditional fairground stalls, impressive Napoleonic Cavalry and infantry displays, but most importantly, a quality classical musical programme. The magical evening culminates in a fireworks display.
Settle down for a picnic and listen to live acoustic music, before watching the historical reenactments. A demonstration of equestrian precision follows, and at about 7.30pm, the evening gun salute by The English Field Artillery Company announces the commencement of the evening's musical programme.
The concert finale encompasses all the traditional flag-waving proms favourites including Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory, culminating in a fireworks spectacular.
