Description

Classical music and a gourmet picnic, all enjoyed in the outdoors. What could be a more perfect way to spend a romantic evening together than this Deluxe Picnic at the Proms gift experience!

The Battle Proms offers a truly spectacular opportunity to enjoy a glorious summer evening of entertainment from start to finish with a parachute display, cavalry, firework displays and more on the bill alongside the fantastic music! These events raise money for military charities, so you can enjoy an exciting evening whilst making a difference to an important cause!

Wherever you choose to enjoy the Proms, whether it’s Hatfield House, Highclere Castle or Blenheim Palace, expect to enjoy this experience in the grounds of one of the UK’s most illustrious homes, so you’ll be in stunning surroundings that only add to this special evening.

All of this can be enjoyed whilst you savour the delights of a delicious picnic!

The show gets kicked off to an exciting start with a display from the mounted cavalry, where they’ll treat you to their battlefield skill-at-arms with lances and rifles. Then it’s time to gaze up into the skies to watch a stunning parachute display by the Red Devils. To start the music side of entertainment for the evening, a warm up act will grace the stage, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy listening to their talents. Before the concert begins the English Field Artillery Company will fire a vintage field gun. This will announce the arrival of the Spitfire, thundering above in the skies, with its distinctive sound impossible to miss and then followed by an unforgettable aerial display.

Now for the main event. Prepare to be amazed by the beautiful sounds of the New English Concert Orchestra, who’ll blow you away with classical hits including Beethoven’s Battle Symphony, complemented by almost 200 cannons, as well as musket fire and fireworks making for a show-stopping performance.

The grand finale is a traditional flag-waving sing-along, finishing with a stunning fireworks display. What could be a more memorable way to finish an evening off!

Also included in this experience is an appetising deluxe picnic, accompanied by a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. A vegetarian option is also available and if you have any dietary requirements, the venue must be notified of them when booking. The contents of the picnic may vary. You’ll be able to collect your picnic upon your arrival at the concert from the blue ‘Picnic Collection Point’ gazebo (which can be found next to the main Box Office). This will need to be collected within 2 hours of the gate opening.

No vehicles are allowed on the concert area, so please allow sufficient time to park your car. The car park opens at 2:00pm and the entrance gates to the concert area open at 4:00pm or 4:30pm, which varies according to the concert venue you select.

Also, as there is no seating at these concerts, we’d strongly recommend to please bring along garden chairs or rugs. The use of recording equipment is also strictly prohibited.

well organised.

My son bought the Proms picnic as a birthday treat and my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Music was lovely and the coordination when the Spitfire flew over was glorious. The highlight was the fireworks which were fantastic. The Picnic box was a delight and the food well prepared and served. The only problem we had was trying to find our car at the end. We knew the park number and the row we were in, but really more lights were needed. All in all a great Saturday. Thank you.

Full box of goodies!

The picnic my daughters ordered for us at the Highclere Castle Battle Prom was superb - we never expected to find such a box of goodies - everything from dips and bics through to chicken and salad, quiche, and then choc dessert, not to forget the wine and water and chocs. Actually I've a feeling I left something out, but it was all so tasty and fresh. Congratulations.

Wonderful Day

We were a little apprehensive as we have never been before and did not know what to expect. The event was fantastic, well organised and performed. The setting was great. And the hamper overflowed with high-quality food and drink. We are now thinking about next year.

The concert was amazing and well worth the journey to see. The picnic was a little disappointing though and not worth the money.
