Battle Proms organisers urge people to host picnic parties in their garden to help charity SSAFA this weekend when Burghley House event should have taken place
This Saturday (July 10) should have seen the crowds gathering at Burghley House in Stamford for the 16th annual Battle Proms concert and an evening of music, fireworks, aerial displays and cannon fire.
The event, unfortunately, has had to be cancelled but the organisers of the Battle Proms are inviting people to have their own picnic party at home.
Event director Adam Slough said: "We're all missing out on the things we were looking forward to this summer so here's an excuse for some stay-at-home fun. We will certainly be missing our Battle Proms family and hope people will keep in touch and share their picnic parties with us on social media!”
Visit the website www.battleproms.com free downloadable decorations, five hours of carefully selected musical playlists of Battle Proms classics, a singalong of vintage favourites with the Battle Proms Belles, Battle Proms-inspired cocktails and more.
At the same time you can help to raise vital funds for the event’s charity partner SSAFA; try your luck in the online raffle for a chance to win a tandem parachute jump with the Red Devils plus a host of other prizes!
There's also the chance to win a photo competition by sharing pictures of your picnic party online.
Next year’s Burghley House Battle Proms Concert will take place on Saturday, July 10, and tickets go on sale at www.battleproms.com on October 1.
