Last Night of the Proms

The Last Night of the Proms should need little introduction- the climax of a summer long celebration of some of the finest classical music, performed by the world's best musicians and orchestras. Although seat tickets for this hugely popular pageant of British tradition sell out weeks in advance, it is possible to pay at the door and entry only costs £5!

So, if you're feeling adventurous, we'll head up to London and join the queue on Bremner Road for standing places in the Gallery. From experience, I'd recommend catching the 13:02 train from Guildford, which will mean arriving at The Royal Albert Hall around 14:30- no guarantees, but this has been plenty early enough to get in for the past 2 years!

Violinist Nigel Kennedy and mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato join the BBC Symphony Orchestra for a programme that includes Britten, Verdi, Bernstein, Handel and Vaughan Williams, a World Premiere and a UK Premiere, before the traditional Last Night patriotism and pageantry brings down the curtain on the historic 2013 BBC Proms- all led, for the first time, by a lady conductor
