Enjoy an unforgettable evening of glorious entertainment with this Outdoor Proms experience for two, including a delicious fresh picnic to share.
This is a thrilling open air concert, set in the grounds of some of the UK’s most celebrated stately homes.
As you unpack your picnic and uncork the wine, enjoy the toe-tapping warm up act and look to the sky for the breathtaking parachute display.
The event begins with a thundering of hooves as the mounted cavalry demonstrate their battlefield skill-at-arms with lances, rifles and spectacular horsemanship.
Next, the English Field Artillery Company herald the arrival of Britain’s favourite warplane. Amidst a volley of gunfire from a vintage field gun, you hear the unmistakable sound of the Spitfire engine rumbling overhead, followed by a meticulously choreographed aerial display which takes place in the evening sky above.
Then it’s time for the New English Concert Orchestra to take to the stage with classical hits such as Beethoven’s Battle Symphony, with a full complement of nearly 200 cannons, plus musket fire and fireworks providing a unique and breath-taking musical performance.
The evening will close with a traditional flag-waving sing-along, culminating in a dazzling fireworks extravaganza.
As part of your experience you will enjoy a delicious fresh gourmet picnic (vegetarian option is available), accompanied by a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, available for collection on arrival at the concert.
Whether you're seeking the perfect gift for your other half or a special couple in your life, this could be the unique experience you have been looking for.
