The BBC Proms 2016Held yearly at the Royal Albert Hall, the Proms is arguably the most popular season of classical music the world over, featuring a varied but accessible programme of 90 or so concerts in eight weeks, concluding on the fabled Last Night where seas of Union flag-waving Brits belt out classics such as Jerusalem and the national anthem. The aim, for the past 120 years, has been to mix the popular and familiar with the surprising and innovative, so if you go to a concert to hear some favourite piece, you may leave having discovered a whole new composer. Between 500 and 1,400 standing tickets are available for each Prom on the door for just five pounds, so top international orchestras and soloists, programmes that mix the adventurous and the accessible, and a real sense of fun can all be had for half the price of a central London cinema ticket. There are also chamber music concerts and Saturday matinees in nearby Cadogan Hall and outdoor events throughout the country. The world-famous Last Night of the Proms brings everything to a thrilling finale - and tickets are like gold dust. Alternatively, join Michael Ball and thousands of revellers in the annual Proms in the Park closing party in Hyde Park.
