This week is your last chance to get cut-price tickets for the 10th annual Burghley House Battle Proms on July 5.

Early bird tickets are available until midnight on Friday, priced at £29.50.

In addition to a full orchestral programme of sublime classical music, this open-air picnic concert features a Spitfire aerial display and stunning firework finale, all with the elegant backdrop provided by the grand Elizabethan architecture of Burghley House.

This year the thrilling mounted skill-at-arms display by an expert cavalry troop will be carried out in First World War regalia to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War, just one of many elements in the 2014 programme that will pay homage to this important anniversary.

Throughout the event, collections will be made for Combat Stress, the veterans’ mental health charity.

Battle Promenaders will also be treated to the Battle Proms’ signature piece – Beethoven’s Battle Symphony – performed as he intended with the full complement of 193 live firing cannon.

Conducted by Douglas Coombes and performed by the New English Concert Orchestra, the programme also includes classical favourites, from Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture to a sing-along finale packed with all the prom favourites such as Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia.

Songs of Praise presenter, Pam Rhodes will be hosting the event andsuperb soprano Denise Leigh will bring the finale to life.
