Last Night of the Proms: The Ultimate Celebration

The Proms, more formally known as The BBC Proms, or The Henry Wood Promenade Concerts presented by the BBC, is an eight-week summer season of daily orchestral classical music concerts and other events held annually, predominantly in the Royal Albert Hall in London. Founded in 1895, each season currently consists of more than 70 concerts in the Albert Hall, a series of chamber concerts at Cadogan Hall, additional Proms in the Park events across the United Kingdom on the last night, and associated educational and children’s events.

In 2009 the total number of concerts reached 100 for the first time. In the context of classical music festivals, Jiří BÄ›lohlávek has described the Proms as ‘the world’s largest and most democratic musical festival’.

Join in the Last Night celebrations in Hyde Park (Saturday, 8 September 2012) headlined by pop icon Kylie Minogue and featuring a host of musical stars including operatic pop group and Classic Brits’ ‘Artist of the decade’ Il Divo, English tenor Alfie Boe and the London Community Gospel Choir, with Proms in the Park favourites, the BBC Concert Orchestra.

To get the musical party under way, presenter Tony Blackburn introduces a range of artists, including Björn Again, The Chicago Blues Brothers, the Gypsy Queens and BBC Big Band.

VIP tickets exclusively for GC Privé members.
