This spectacular open-air concert takes place in the leafy and historic Queen Elizabeth Oak Field of Hatfield House, and begins with toe-tapping vintage vocals from The Battle Proms Belles, followed by a thrilling historic cavalry display.

Then it’s eyes to the skies as The Red Devils, the Parachute Regiment and British Army’s official display team, perform their daring freefall display in the skies above the concert.

The highlight of the evening is a two-hour orchestral performance of uplifting classical favourites by the New English Concert Orchestra, ably led by conductor Douglas Coombes MBE and featuring acclaimed soprano Denise Leigh.

The stirring opening pieces, Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No 4 in G and Symphony No.1 in A flat, will herald the arrival of the legendary Grace Spitfire for a breathtaking and meticulously choreographed aerial display.

As the evening draws in, the excitement builds with Tchaikovsky’s celebrated 1812 Overture and the Battle Proms signature piece, Beethoven’s ‘Battle Symphony’.

A Battle Proms concert is the only place in the world that you can experience this piece performed as Beethoven composed it, with 193 live firing cannons providing a ground-shaking percussion!

An evening you won’t forget, The Battle Proms culminates in a jubilant flag-waving sing-along finale, as Denise brings the crowd to its feet with Jerusalem, Rule Brittania, Land of Hope and Glory and more, while magnificent musical firework displays light up the sky.
