Battle of the Proms - Thursday 6 July

A grand-night-out, picnic-concert, sing-along evening.

The evening has always had a ‘British’ feel to it, climaxing as it does with the singing of Rule Britannia, Land of Hope and Glory, Jerusalem and the National Anthem.

It is a truly engaging event and we encourage you to bring picnics, but don’t worry if you can’t there is always a great selection to eat and drink, including around 100 barrels of some of the best local beers!
