About the Battle Proms

IMG 3379Web5x4a9006

The Battle Proms are exciting yet informal open air picnic concerts. You are welcome to bring your own food and picnic equipment and create your own space in the auditorium. You unpack the hampers and champers and we provide an evening of exceptional entertainment!

The Battle Proms team is proud to have been staging these unique picnic concerts since 1997, bringing together sublime music with stunningly choreographed aerial displays, thunderous cannon fire, dramatic cavalry displays and fantastic fireworks. Join us in 2015 for an unforgettable, glorious evening of entertainment in the grounds of some of the UK’s most celebrated stately homes, when we will be marking 200 years since the Battle of Waterloo.

Please complete the 'Behind the Scenes' form at the bottom of the page to be the first to hear when tickets are on sale, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for Battle Proms news and updates and to enjoy the spectacular entries to our photo competition.

A year to celebrate at the Battle Proms!

The Battle Proms Concert series will celebrate a number of important anniversaries in 2015. 

Waterloo 200 Low Res 

The Battle Proms takes much of its historical inspiration from the Napoleonic wars, which came to a conclusion 200 years ago at the Battle of Waterloo when Napoleon’s rule as Emperor of the French was ended. The Battle Proms team are also planning to celebrate 75 years since the Battle of Britain and 70 years since the end of the Second World War with a number of additions to the programme. The final concert, at Ragley Hall in Warwickshire on Saturday 15 August, even takes place on the 70th anniversary of V-J Day!
