The hugely popular picnic concert series is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

And The Red Devils dropped in on Saturday’s classical concert in the Queen Elizabeth Oak Field at the Hertfordshire stately home.

However, the Spitfire display had to be cancelled for safety reasons due to low cloud cover.

Nevertheless, the evening still went with a bang, as Battle Prommers enjoyed the New English Concert Orchestra performing both Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and Beethoven’s Battle Symphony accompanied by live cannon fire and fireworks.

Earlier in the day, The Jazz Spivs performed on stage, while there were Napoleonic cavalry displays in the grounds.

The musical programme finished in traditional fashion with rousing Last Night of the Proms favourites as more fireworks lit up the night sky.

Here are some pictures from the Hatfield House Battle Proms concert.

The Welwyn Hatfield Times also streamed the Hatfield House fireworks display live on our Facebook page.
