BBC Proms in the ParkBritain's largest classical music event, the outdoor BBC Proms in the Park concert in Hyde Park, is a rousing alternative finale to two months of the BBC Proms for those unable to snare tickets to the Last Night of the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall. While the whole Last Night shebang is broadcast live on the BBC, nothing quite beats experiencing the biggest night in the classical music calendar under the stars in Hyde Park. Families and friends gather with picnic hampers and rugs for five hours of evening entertainment hosted by Radio 2 DJ Tony Blackburn and the inimitable Sir Terry Wogan with a sensational firework finale above the stage to cap things off.

 

About Hyde Park

Technically two different parks, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are in practical terms one huge, merging expanse. The 'split' dates back to 1728 when Queen Caroline, wife of George II, took almost 300 acres from Hyde Park to form Kensington Gardens. The 350 acres that remained has become one of London's best-loved parks. More about Hyde Park
