Battle Proms at Blenheim Palace

At beautiful Blenheim Palace, the Battle Proms concert comprises traditional fairground stalls, impressive Napoleonic Cavalry and infantry displays but, most importantly, a quality classical musical programme. The magical July evening culminates in a fireworks display.

Settle down for a picnic and listen to live acoustic music, before watching the historical re-enactments. A demonstration of equestrian precision follows and, about 7.30pm, the evening gun salute by The English Field Artillery Company announces the commencement of the night's musical programme.

Performing a wealth of triumphal classics, the New English Concert Orchestra is joined by superb soprano soloist Denise Leigh for an enchanting selection of arias and operettas, including Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture with live cannon and the performance of Beethoven's Battle Symphony.

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.
