In this exclusive online-only competition, we’re giving away three pairs of tickets to the Battle Proms Picnic Concerts.
The Battle Proms are spectacular summer celebrations bringing a feast of sublime music and dramatic Spitfire, parachute, cavalry, and firework displays to stately home gardens around the UK. This year, they are celebrating their 25th anniversary, their fifth year partnering with the Armed Forces charity: the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA), and having raised over £500,000 for military charities!
The Battle Proms team, keenly aware that many classical pieces, such their signature piece, Beethoven’s ‘Battle Symphony’, were written to commemorate battles in which lives were lost, decided several years ago to use their concerts as a platform to support armed forces charities.
To date they have raised an incredible £504,600 through audience donations and contributions from concert profits. In 2018 they joined forces with SSAFA and in the last five years the partnership has raised over £169,000 for the charity’s vital work.
The Battle Proms returns this July, once again in support of SSAFA, with concerts at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire (2 July), Burghley House in Lincolnshire (9 July), Hatfield House in Hertfordshire (16 July), and Highclere Castle – the ‘real Downton Abbey’! – in Hampshire (30 July).
To celebrate, three lucky winners will each receive a pair of tickets to the event.
