A summer celebration with music, Spitfire, cannons, cavalry & fireworks!

Pack up the hampers and champers and join thousands of loyal fans for an exceptional afternoon and evening of entertainment at the 19th annual Hatfield House Battle Proms Concert.

In the beautiful and historic setting of the Queen Elizabeth Oak Field, this quintessentially British ‘party in the park’ features magnificent musical firework displays, culminating in a flag waving, sing-a-long spectacular including all the ‘last night of the proms’ finale favourites such as Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory.

The Battle Proms is still believed to be the only opportunity in the world to see their signature piece – Beethoven’s ‘Battle Symphony’ – performed as he composed it: with 193 live firing Napoleonic cannons providing a thunderous percussion!

The picnic concert takes place in the Queen Elizabeth Oak Field in the leafy parkland at Hatfield House. Legend has it that it was beneath one of the ancient oaks in this field that the young Queen Elizabeth I heard that she was to be Queen of England.

Here is a little video of what you can expect… Battle Proms

The Old Palace at Hatfield House is where Elizabeth I spent much of her childhood and later held her first Council of State in November 1558. The celebrated Jacobean House has been the family home to the Cecils since it was built in 1611.  A place so steeped in history makes the perfect setting for a summer celebration with the Battle Proms.
