In addition to a full orchestral programme of sublime classical music, this unique open-air picnic concert features a carefully choreographed Spitfire aerial display and stunning firework finale, all set amid the ancient oaks and leafy surrounds of Hatfield Park.

This year the thrilling mounted skill-at-arms display by an expert cavalry troop will be carried out in World War One regalia to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, just one of many elements in the 2014 programme that will pay homage to this important historical anniversary.

Battle Promenaders will also be treated to the Battle Proms signature piece – Beethoven’s Battle Symphony – performed as he intended with the full complement of 193 live firing cannon providing a thunderous percussion.

Conducted by Douglas Coombes and performed by the New English Concert Orchestra, the musical programme also includes rousing classical favourites suited to the grandeur of the historic settings, from Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, which also gets the ‘Battle Proms treatment’ of live cannon fire, to a sing-along finale packed with all the Prom favourites such as Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia.

Much-loved Songs of Praise presenter and celebrated compère, Pam Rhodes, will be hosting the event again, while organisers are delighted to welcome back superb soprano Denise Leigh to bring the finale to life and the crowd to their feet before the spectacular firework display lights up the summer sky.

Gates to the park will open at 4.30pm, the entertainments begin from 5.45pm, and the event finishes around 10pm.
